TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton says he has improved every day and is hopeful he will be cleared to play in the Cardinals' game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Speaking to reporters for the first time this week, Stanton said after Thursday's practice that he is symptom free but hopes to pass tests on Friday that would clear him to play.

Stanton sustained a concussion in last Sunday's loss at Denver. The status of quarterback Carson Palmer remains uncertain as he works his way back from an injured nerve in his throwing shoulder.

If Stanton and Palmer can't play, the start would go to rookie Logan Thomas.

Stanton says that the test he took on Wednesday still found him ''lagging'' in some areas.
