Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys have released defensive end Michael Sam from their practice squad.

Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team, signed with the Cowboys on Sept. 3 after he was among the final cuts of the St. Louis Rams.

Coach Jason Garrett and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli praised Sam's work in practice.

"Comes to work every day and practices hard," Garrett said last week. "One of 10 practice roster guys that we have, so he's working on his skills, trying to develop, but also doing a lot of other things. Playing offense, defense, playing the kicking game, that's what a lot of those guys do."
Sam issued this statement on Twitter:

I heard he had trouble penetrating the backfield, which mystifies me. of course Garrett said he did come to work and practice hard.
