Lauren Silberman — the first female to participate in an NFL regional combine tryout — had her hopes of being invited to an NFL training camp dashed after injuring herself after two kicks. The 28-year-old woman was being evaluated by league trainers after the kickoff drills, according to NJ.com. The Brooklyn native made history by becoming the first woman to tryout in the NFL's 91-year old history, but didn't make much of an an impression outside of the publicized appearance. Silberman's first kick from the 35-yard line travelled 16 yards across midfield and stopped.  Her second attempt did not make it that far and came to a stop at her own 49-yard stripe. She took about 20 seconds to set up for the lame kicks. Throughout Sunday afternoon, the NFL hopeful did not appear to attempt a single warmup kick. Silberman joined over 60 male participants (including 36 kickers) at the New York Jets facility in Florham Park, N.J. — hoping to spark an interest from NFL teams that might try to draft them in late rounds or invite them to training camp — in front of combine personnel.  Silberman asked to see a trainer after her two kicks. It is unclear if the former college soccer player will try again or participate in the second portion of the kicker workout — which consists of kicking field goals from five different spots.  Silberman disappeared after a tearful goodbye — citing an injury she suffered this past week.. For some reason it all reeks of reality TV — especially since it involves the Jets.
