First Openly Gay Player Makes NFL Debut

Michael Sam is the first openly gay player to take snaps in the NFL. He entered the game Friday night for St. Louis at defensive end with about five minutes to play in the first quarter. Sam registered one tackle and a QB hit in St. Louis' 26-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Sam was drafted by the Rams out of Missouri in the seventh round of this year's NFL Draft. He is still trying to make the 53-man roster.
