ST. LOUIS- Excitement? Stress? Whatever the reason, the St. Louis Rams 3-2 start resulted in a trip to the hospital for one key franchise figure. Kevin Demoff, the Rams executive vice president of football operations and chief operating officer, fainted at Rams Park on Friday afternoon and was transported to a nearby facility for precautionary reasons. No severe health risks are expected. I guess fainting the day after going over .500 isnt exactly acting like youve been there before, Demoff (@kdemoff) tweeted. The Rams have enjoyed uncommon success this season. After beating the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, they are above .500 for the first time since owning a 4-3 mark on Nov. 4, 2006. They have defeated their first two NFC West opponents (the Seattle Seahawks and Cardinals), and they hold a 3-0 record at home. Kevin is stable, hes alert, hes fine, hes just undergoing some tests and hes going to be just fine, Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters. I dont have any more to report on that other than he just had an incident in his office and he was taken to the hospital. I spoke with him before he left, and hes going to be just fine. Demoff is in his fourth year in his current role. He works with Fisher and general manager Les Snead to develop the Rams plan for signings and player acquisitions. Hes also charged with planning around the NFLs salary cap and collective bargaining agreement, as well as participating in other business operations. Demoff, a Los Angeles native, earned a bachelors degree in history from Dartmouth College in 1999 and an MBA from Dartmouths Tuck School of Business in 2006. Before joining the Rams, he worked for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from the 2005 to 08 seasons as a consultant and senior assistant. During his stint in Florida, the Buccaneers won NFC South titles in 2005 and 07 and posted winning records in three of his four seasons. The Rams next play on Oct. 14 on the road against the Miami Dolphins.
