ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams general manager Charley Armey was hospitalized Saturday night, the first day of the NFL draft, after complaining about shortness of breath and rapid heart beat.

Coach Scott Linehan said preliminary tests were normal but that Armey would be kept overnight at Missouri Baptist Hospital.

"Obviously, we're concerned," Linehan said. "But not as much now."

Armey has been with the Rams since 1997 and is responsible for much of the player evaluation in the draft. Linehan said he was not in the draft room when Armey first complained of problems, and said Armey left but then briefly returned before the team selected Colorado tight end Joe Klopfenstein in the third round.

After the pick, Armey was taken to the hospital.

"We all convinced him he needed to get everything checked out," Linehan said. "Apparently, everything is fine."
