Kicker glad for the opportunity despite suffering injury on opening attempt.
In what was expected to be a big moment for equality in the NFL were dashed in one simple kick of a ball.
Lauren Silberman was meant to impress the scouts and media with her leg strength and long range field goals. They never got to see any of that, as she pulled her thigh muscle on her very first kick.
Conspiracy theorists will say that she was never any good, that it was all a publicity stunt by the NFL, but that would have been a massive waste of time for the scouts that attended and a real insult to all the other kickers that have trained their whole lives for this opportunity.
While it did not end well, the 28 year old was thankful for the opportunity to at least have the chance to showcase her talents even though she never got the chance to prove it in the NFL.
Perhaps she will have a second go at it in the near future.
