Tonight, Michael Sam is on his way to Texas to take a physical for the Dallas Cowboys. If the openly gay college football star passes the examination, he will be signed to the team’s practice squad, reported ESPN.  

In May, the St. Louis Rams drafted Sam into the NFL just a few months after he made history as the first Division I college football player to come out as gay.  The defenseman was cut from the Rams on Saturday. 

Stay tuned to the HRC blog as we continue to follow Sam’s trailblazing journey.
