Packers Need More From Back-Up Cornerbacks

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The idea that the Green Bay Packers' defense isn't itself without cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Al Harris isn't exactly a startling revelation. Still, Saturday night's preseason game in Seattle was tough to watch at times.

The Packers won the game 27-24, but a first-team defense missing several key players struggled to stop a Seattle offense that isn't considered one of the league's elite. Woodson didn't play because of nagging injuries, and Harris is recovering from last year's season-ending knee surgery.

Even with Woodson and Harris, the Packers will need more from their backup cornerbacks.
