Rams exec said to be alert after fainting

St. Louis Rams executive Kevin Demoff left team headquarters on a stretcher after fainting, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

A team spokesman I contacted said Demoff was alert and that paramedics were taking him to the hospital as a precaution.

Demoff, who is in his 30s, has been with the organization since 2009. He played a role in the Rams' major front-office and coaching hirings. As chief operating officer, he also negotiates player contracts and manages the salary cap.
