Female Kickers Tryout Short Lived

Lauren Silberman’s kicking tryout at the Regional Combine lasted only two kicks today, the Associated Press reports. She then asked to see a trainer and left the practice field after injuring her quadriceps, and appeared to be slightly favoring her right leg. “They certainly didn’t go as far as they were in practices,” Silberman said, “but I tried to work through the pain.” The 28-year-old Silberman said she hurt her quadriceps while preparing for the tryout earlier in the week, and attributed her struggles to that.
