Packers hope healthy Burnett helps vs Lions

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Safeties coach Darren Perry says the Green Bay Packers defense, which has given up a lot of passing yards already this season, will have its hands full against Detroit - one of the NFL's more prolific passing attacks.

Perry is hopeful the return of safety Morgan Burnett can make a difference Sunday when the Packers host the Lions.

Burnett has missed Green Bay's first three games because of a hamstring injury. He is looking forward to matching up with Lions All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson.
