Injury hampers first woman to trial for NFL

11:35 am on 6 March 2013

The first woman to ever take part in American football NFL trials isn't ruling out another attempt after injury restricted her performance.

Lauren Silberman, who's 28, took part in one of 10 regional trials in New Jersey but failed to overcome a thigh problem.

Competing alongside 36 other kickers, all male, Silberman only managed two kicks before aggravating a right quadriceps injury which suffered while preparing for the trial.
