The Falcons have recently signed with Catapult, an Australian company, to provide them with GPS athlete tracking technology.
The devices are used by seven other NFL teams to monitor athlete movement and they let the team know how hard each player is working.
The information from the device likely led the Falcons to pulling wide receiver Julio Jones out of practice against he Bengals on Monday.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said Jones’ was reduced to limited status for precautionary reasons.
