Michael Sam is reportedly a physical away from joining the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Cowboys plan to bring Sam in for a physical on Wednesday for purposes of signing him to their 10-man practice roster.

Rapoport reported on Monday that the CFL's Montreal Alouettes had contacted Sam but had not heard back.

Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, has not been signed to an NFL practice squad since being released by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday.

He cleared waivers on Sunday.

The Rams announced their 10-man practice squad on Monday, which did not include Sam or any other defensive end.

Sam was drafted by the Rams in the seventh round (249th overall) of May's NFL Draft.
