Kicker Lauren Silberman could only manage two kicks at the regional combine after sustaining an injury in training last week.

Lauren Silberman has described her day at the NFL regional combine as "frustrating" after managing just two kicks before limping off with a leg injury.

The kicker sustained a quadriceps injury in training last week, restricting her to two kickoffs which traveled less than 20 yards.

The 28-year-old told reporters: "Obviously, it was a very frustrating day because I wanted to show the world how well I could kick.

"I kept trying to work through it, but between the pain and the risk of further injury, I thought it was best to stop."

Silberman was the first woman to take part in a regional combine, following a change in league rules in 2011 allowing females to compete.

The regional combines allow prospective NFL players to showcase their skills ahead of the draft in April.
