First Woman Tries Out for NFL, Quits


(CNN) The first woman to try out for the NFL dream has been deferred.

Lauren Silberman quit try-outs for the New York and New Jersey Scouting Combine Sunday after two poor kickoff attempts.

The 28-year-old said she aggravated a leg injury she suffered in training last week.

Silberman — whose two kicks went less than 20 yards — has no experience playing football, but she did play soccer in college.

She only started kicking footballs as a hobby a few months ago.
