FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Lauren Silberman's NFL tryout has lasted all of two kicks, neither of which traveled 20 yards.
Silberman is the first woman to compete at an NFL regional scouting combine. She is 28 years old and played club soccer at Wisconsin.
She left the New York Jets' practice field after injuring her quadriceps. She tried two kickoffs, the first going 19 yards and the second about 13 yards. She then asked to see a trainer.
As more than two dozen media, including E! Entertainment network, watched her every move, Silberman was examined by a trainer. About 30 minutes later, while 36 other kickers continued their workouts, she called the scene ``surreal.''
Silberman left the complex soon after that.
