Buffalo Bills use GPS devices to track players' practice workload

The Buffalo Bills found the latest way to track players' exertion while getting the most out of them.

With technology built by Australian-based Catapult, the Bills this training camp will monitor the strength and condition factors of players with a GPS device the size of a phone pager, according to the Bills' official website.

The devices, which Catapult created for Australian Rules Football and English Premier League soccer teams, are removed by Ciano and his staff after every practice. The information about every player's workout is downloaded into the team's computers.

The result is that players are anxious to know their daily workload.
