Warner starts for Cards despite torn ligaments in non-thowing elbow

LANDOVER, Md. -- Kurt Warner started at quarterback Sunday
for the Arizona Cardinals against the Washington Redskins, one week
after tearing a ligament in his non-throwing elbow.

Warner took the field with a black, bulky brace on his left
elbow, the result of several attempts during the week to find an
apparatus that would cause the least amount of discomfort.

Warner was hurt in last week's loss to Carolina and was replaced
by Tim Rattay, who had been signed just a few days earlier. This
week, the Cardinals were preparing a simplified game plan for
Rattay and another new signing, Tim Hasselbeck, in case Warner
couldn't play.
