By Michael Korsky, USA TODAY Sports The latest on the NFL’s ongoing efforts to address breast cancer (all times local): 11:45 a.m.
The NFL announced Thursday that the league will start using new technologies to track players’ health and to evaluate whether they have the potential to develop breast cancer.
The league says it will start tracking the use of an MRI device that will be used to scan athletes’ chests.
The new technology will also be used for players’ annual physicals and the player’s medical records.
The first data will be collected for each player during the 2016 season.
The players’ physicals will be kept in a secure facility for future analysis.
The technology is being developed by the company GEO Group, which is also developing the technology for the NBA.
The devices are also being used in other sports.
The use of the technology was initially planned to be in conjunction with the introduction of new artificial turf.
But it was delayed to ensure players have access to the new technology.
“This is a major step toward making sure that our players have the tools to live healthy lives,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
“As a nation, we’ve done a great job at building strong families, and the NFL is committed to ensuring that all of our players are equipped with the tools they need to lead healthy lives.”
The Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens will face off for the NFC East title on Sunday night in the divisional playoffs.
Baltimore’s Ray Lewis and Philadelphia’s Ed Reed will battle it out for the starting job.
The game will be broadcast nationally on NBC.
10:45 p.m.-12:15 a.p.m.: The NFL will begin using a new wearable device that can monitor the health of players and provide detailed information about how they are performing in game situations.
The device, called the BodyGym Fit, will be available in the NFL Network’s game day experience for the first time.
It will be paired with the league’s health and fitness tracking system, NFL.com reports.
The wearable device will be sold by the NFL for $299.99.
The company also will introduce new sensors that will monitor body temperatures, and players will be able to track their health and weight, according to a statement from the NFL.
The National Football League is expanding its efforts to reduce breast cancer deaths by using a combination of new technology and the medical care and prevention services of its own doctors.
The goal is to make sure every player on every team has access to effective and comprehensive breast cancer screenings, as well as access to medical care to treat the symptoms of breast cancer and prevent further recurrences, the NFL said in its announcement Thursday.
The number of breast-cancer deaths has dropped in recent years.
The latest figures show the number of women diagnosed with breast cancer decreased by 3.2% in 2015.
It is also the most deadly form of cancer, according the NFL, with an estimated death toll of over 12,000 women each year.
More than 1,800 people die each day from the disease.
The NCAA men’s basketball tournament will be held in New York City, and its home field will be the University of Maryland.
The N.C. State men’s and women’s basketball tournaments will also take place in New Jersey, according a statement issued by the NCAA.
The men’s tournament is the second of its kind in the country and is the largest in college basketball history, with more than 1 million people expected to attend.
The tournament, which will be played from Aug. 27-Sept. 2, will feature four teams each with a capacity of 30,000.
The women’s tournament will feature the top two teams from each region, with teams from the top three seeds from each conference participating in the finals.
The top two from each tournament will qualify for the Final Four of the NCAA basketball tournament.

The NBA announced it is partnering with the NHL to provide new technology to help players who suffer a concussion.
The NHL is providing the NHL Players Association with a “medical technology platform” for concussion monitoring, training and assessment, according an NHL statement.
The platform will provide NHL teams and players with advanced analytics tools and data collection that can help them make informed decisions in the face of a concussion, the NHL said.
The partnership between the NHL and the NHLPA comes amid a public awareness campaign and an ongoing investigation into the concussion issue in the league.
The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday the team has agreed to terms with a contract with new owner John Schott.
The deal includes a $25 million salary cap, a $2 million workout bonus and a $500,000 workout bonus.
The team will pay Schott a base salary of $8.5 million and a signing bonus of $1.
