Packers Defense Draws Questions


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers' pass defense has given up some big plays in the preseason, causing concern that the team might not have fixed a lingering weakness from last season.

The Packers went into training camp already looking thin at outside linebacker and in the secondary. Injuries have only made the situation worse.

Outside linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones are sidelined by injuries, as are cornerback Al Harris and safety Atari Bigby. It's not clear when those players will return.

Sure, the Packers aren't unveiling their best blitz packages in the preseason. But Charles Woodson says the Packers are only as good as what they've shown -- and what they've shown hasn't been great.
