ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Jason Smith, inactive Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks with a concussion, was taken to a hospital for observation after becoming ill near the end of the game.

Smith was released a few hours after the game, team spokesman Ted Crews said.

Smith, the second overall pick of the draft, failed two baseline tests during the practice week. He was on the sideline with the rest of the team's inactive players before getting ill and vomiting late in the Rams' 27-17 loss on Sunday.
