After watching DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry run through his first-team defense with relative ease during the third exhibition game, Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he took those struggles personally as a former NFL linebacker who prides himself on having a stout defense.

The San Francisco 49ers staff tests the latest in football technology — remote-controlled practice tackling dummies, otherwise called Mobile Virtual Player, MVP. The mobile dummies are being tested and used at training camps throughout the NFL and major colleges this summer. The robotic dummies can be used in tackling drills, without the risk of a player being injured, as well as other game-situation drills. The 150-pound dummies can reach speeds of 18 mph, or cover 40 yards in five seconds.
