The NFL could be making the uprights a little tighter.

FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:

The NFL will be putting computer chips in footballs during preseason games this year to measure how close to the uprights kickers get on extra points.

Depending what the tests show, the league may continue collecting data during Thursday night games, potentially setting the stage for narrower goal posts to try to make extra points harder.

The league moved extra points further away last year, but teams still made 85-percent of their attempts.

And speaking of kicking, the NCAA Division-I Football Oversight Committee is discussing the possibility of eliminating kick-offs because of the high rate of injuries on the play.

Pop Warner has already stopped kick-offs for players under 10-years-old.
