Soccer player Lauren Silberman injures leg after two kicks at NFL Regional Combine

Former Wisconsin club soccer player Lauren Silberman made waves this week when she was the first female to compete at an NFL Regional Scouting Combine. Unfortunately for the 28-year-old, and the hordes of media on hand, she pulled up lame with a quadriceps injury on her first kick.

Silberman would go on to attempt a second kick, but the injury made it even worse than her first. Her two kickoffs went 19 and 13 yards.

“They certainly didn’t go as far as they were in practices,” Silberman told media from more than 20 outlets who were on hand primarily to see how she would do, “but I tried to work through the pain.”

Silberman first gained notoriety on a national scale last month when she told the NFL Network that she could boot 60-yard field goals and was ready to take on that combine.
