Pill to monitor body temp in NFL tests.: "The Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles are using the device to gauge the effect of suffocating heat on huge athletes going through intense August workouts in pads and a helmet." In other news (also from Wired), nanotubes may someday help fix broken or brittle bones. Nice ways for elite sports teams to protect their investments, and hopefully accessible to the rest of us as a result. More tech for superhuman efforts.

I read this yesterday. It really is neat. Its something right out of "Star Trek" "Dang it Jim, I am a Doctor not a football player!" ;-)

I bet that all those guys are glas that you only have to swallow the pill instead on any other way. :)

I know the Jaguars were using these pills last season, so I guess they worked pretty well. They were used during games, as well.

I'm all for it if it's working. I will say though that if they come in to camp at a proper weight, they may not need these. I can really see Dick Butkus using this. But as I said, if it works, more power to them all.
