ST. LOUIS -- Two fans were injured at the end of the St. Louis Rams' season finale when they fell out of the stands reaching for a shoe a player had tossed their way.

One fan left the Edward Jones Dome for a hospital strapped to a gurney. But coach Steve Spagnuolo said after the Rams' 28-6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers that he had been told neither fan was seriously hurt.

The team said in a statement that one fan was taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital and was being evaluated.

Players typically toss equipment items into the stands as they leave the field, especially after the finale.
