ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills quarterback Trent Edwards was back at work a week after being knocked out in Buffalo's Week 5 loss to Arizona and said he expects to play Sunday when the Bills (4-1) host San Diego (3-3).
``I'm getting better each day,'' he said of the concussion. ``It was a tough couple of days there after the hit. I had some headaches and residual effects from it, but slowly but surely they're going away.''
Edwards is scheduled for more tests Tuesday, but he's confident everything will be fine.
``If those (results) come back the way I think they're going to come back, we should be good to go on Sunday,'' he said.
After consulting with team physicians Monday morning, he was cleared for a full practice.
Edwards was knocked cold on the third play from scrimmage when Cardinals strong safety Adrian Wilson drove him to the ground. Edwards missed both practices last week before the Bills began a four-day layoff, and said his headaches began to dissipate over the weekend.
admitted he has no memory of the 10-15 minute span that immediately followed the play.
``I remember sitting in the trainers room with my pads off and my shoes off, but I don't remember how I got to the training room or who hit me,'' he said. ``I was kind of out of it, and didn't know where I was. Slowly I came back to it.''
Receiver/punt returner Roscoe Parrish practiced for the first time since surgery to repair ligament damage in his right thumb that forced him to miss the past two games. Starting free safety Ko Simpson also practiced. He missed the second half of the Cardinals game because of a hamstring injury.
Starting cornerback Terrence McGee and starting defensive end Aaron Schobel both missed Monday's practice. McGee sprained his left knee early against St. Louis in Week 4 and missed the Cardinals game, while Schobel is nursing a nagging left foot injury.

Quarterback Jon Kitna says he expects to play eventually this year, but doesn't know if he will this week against the Houston Texans.
Kitna told The Associated Press on Monday his back injury isn't that bad. Coach Rod Marinelli declined to answer questions about Kitna's health at his news conference.
Fourth-year pro Dan Orlovsky played in Sunday's 12-10 loss at Minnesota, snapping Kitna's starting streak at 36 games.
he first time in his career against the Vikings.
The 36-year-old Kitna started against the Chicago Bears on Oct. 5, but left the game with back spasms.
