Michael Sam, Rams’ rookie defensive end and the first openly gay player ever drafted into the NFL, watched unheralded fellow rookie and roster spot competitor Ethan Westbrooks have another big outing at defensive end in the first half.

Sam, a seventh-round draft pick from Missouri, had an uneventful first half as a member of the kickoff and punt return teams. He played defensively in the second half. In the fourth quarter, he sacked Packers quarterback Matt Flynn for a 10-yard loss on a third-and-19 play from St. Louis 21-yard line. Sam beat the offensive tackle cleanly from his left end position.

But Westbrooks, an undrafted free agent, played with the second team in the opening half and had another productive game.
