SHARE Rams coach hurt in fight

O'FALLON, Mo. — St. Louis Rams assistant coach Wilbert Montgomery was in the hospital Wednesday night after being involved in a fight with three golfers.

KSDK-TV in St. Louis reported Montgomery was sent to the hospital after he was attacked in his back yard, which backs up to a golf course in suburban O'Fallon.

The fight started when a stray golf ball broke a window of Montgomery's home.

"Our biggest concern at this point is how Wilbert is," Rams head coach Mike Martz said. "He received some blows to the head, and we're concerned about him."

Messages left with O'Fallon police by The Associated Press were not immediately returned.

Montgomery was Philadelphia's sixth-round pick in the 1977 NFL draft, and he went on to play eight seasons with the Eagles before retiring in 1985. He has been a coach in the league for 12 years, the last three with the Rams.
