Injury woe halts Silberman's NFL charge

    Lauren Silberman’s attempt to become the first woman to play in the NFL ended in heartbreak after injury ended her lifelong ambition.

    The 28-year-old, who was taking part in a regional trial to become a goal kicker in New Jersey, managed just two kicks before succumbing to a quad problem.

    Her first effort travelled just 20 yards, while she was forced to leave the field after her second kick only reached 13 yards.

    Silberman said: "When I had the opportunity to be in the NFL, one of the world’s most competitive leagues, I had to take the chance. If I had the opportunity to try again I’d jump at it, but it’s not up to me. It’s up to the scouts."
