WATCH: Michael Sam's Return to Football


After abruptly leaving the Montreal Alouettes, the out player returns for his first game.

After being the first openly gay player to be drafted by the NFL, Michael Sam segued to a position on the Montreal Alouettes after being cut by the St. Louis Rams and the Dallas Cowboys. But Sam's new job looked shaky when he suddenly took a leave of absence in June for "personal reasons."

Sam returned later in the month, but didn't play the Alouettes first five games. On Friday, he finally got to play. The defensive end got on the field at the end of the first quarter (watch below, via TMZ), but didn't record a tackle. The Alouettes lost to the Ottawa Redblacks, 23-26.
