Michael Sam gets first NFL preseason sack against Packers
Aug 16, 2014 at 6:49p ET
After the rookie Rams defensive lineman was stonewalled for much of Saturday's preseason game vs. the Green Bay Packers, Sam beat right tackle Derek Sherrod on a speed move, hauling in quarterback Matt Flynn for the sack in the fourth quarter at Edward Jones Dome.
Sam, who must impress on special teams to make the final 53-man cut, is in a heated battle with undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks.
The undrafted defensive end from West Texas A&M was active in the trenches, racking up three tackles and swatting balls at the line of scrimmage.
