GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said today his starting offensive and defensive units might play 25 to 35 snaps in the preseason game against Seattle on Saturday.

McCarthy is putting an emphasis on getting the first-string offense in sync after it had a lackluster performance in the first preseason game last weekend.

The group didn't pick up a first down in four possessions and gained a total of only three yards before giving way to the backups in a 13-9 comeback win at Pittsburgh last Saturday.

McCarthy indicated that the offense could be without starting fullback Brandon Miree (stinger) and rookie running back DeShawn Wynn (quadriceps) for the second straight game.

The availability of starting cornerbacks Al Harris and Charles Woodson will be determined after the team practices later today.
