Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner went through a third consecutive day of practice Friday with a brace on his left elbow, but said it didn't feel as well as Thursday.

His status remains questionable entering Sunday's game at Washington.

Tim Rattay would be the likely starter if Warner can't play, with newly signed Tim Hasselbeck as the backup.

"He did a couple things here and there but it's going to be how it feels on Sunday," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said of Warner. "That's what it's going to come down to."

Warner and safety Adrian Wilson remain questionable on the team's injury report. Wilson said earlier in the week he plans on playing, and Whisenhunt said it's gotten better during the week, but wants his Pro Bowl safety to test it Sunday morning.

With backup safety Aaron Francisco also out, Whisenhunt said Oliver Celestin and Matt Ware would see action if Wilson doesn't play.

"You never know with a hamstring," Whisenhunt said. "You don't want to stress it too much in practice so when he comes out Sunday we'll work him out ahead of time."

The news was a bit clearer for offensive tackle Levi Brown, who's missed three games with an ankle injury, but went through the majority of Friday's practice.

Though he's likely to play Sunday, Whisenhunt wouldn't say how much the team's rookie first-round pick will play.

"He will (start) at some point, I don't know if it would be this week," Whisenhunt said. "It's hard when you come back off an injury and haven't had full reps as a starter."

Defensive end Joe Tafoya (hamstring) is also a game-time decision.
