Packers Using GPS Technology to Reduce Training Camp Injuries

In a new interesting attempt to reduce training camp injuries, the Packers have apparently begun using GPS technology on certain players, Pro Football Talk's Darin Gantt reports.

In recent years, the Pack have been one of the most beat up teams in the NFL, making this form of monitoring a strange but justifiable method. 

According to Head Coach Mike McCarthy, the technology will help schedule practices and train players better, what he considers the most important part of his job.

So far this summer, only one major injury (Johnathan Franklin) has hit the Packers, a major improvement over the last few seasons.
