The Packers are looking to prevent injuries from piling up.
The top issue that seems to sting the Packers every year is injuries. Last year, the Packers ended the season with 15 players on injured reserve, according to ESPN.com.
Starters have missed a total of 153 games in the past two seasons. That is more than any other team in the NFL. Randall Cobb, Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Jermichael Finley, Bryan Bulaga, Nick Perry and Casey Hayward all missed significant time in 2013.
The Packers have taken steps to prevent the injury bug from swarming them in 2014. EPSN.com's Rob Demovsky confirms the Packers are using a GPS-based tech firm to study injures and aid in their prevention.
As ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert states, "Tracking devices measure player movement during training, practice and games, compiling data on running speed, the force of collisions, friction created by the playing surface and more." This gives Mike McCarthy data on the wear his players absorb through out a period of time. It could keep the Packers healthy enough to make a strong playoff run.
