ST. LOUIS (AP) -St. Louis Rams owner Georgia Frontiere has been hospitalized in Los Angeles with an undisclosed illness, a family spokesman said Tuesday night.
``Our mother has been in a hospital for some health issues and is feeling better,'' Frontiere's son Chip Rosenbloom and daughter Lucia Rodriguez said in a statement read by family spokesman Gene Schwam.
Schwam said he was unaware of the exact nature of Frontiere's illness or how long she has been in the hospital. He also wouldn't say what hospital she was in.
Frontiere, who turned 80 last month, has had health problems for several months, team spokesman Rick Smith said. She has not attended any of the team's games this season, although Smith said he believed Frontiere had been feeling better in recent weeks.
Frontiere has been in charge of the franchise since her husband, Carroll Rosenbloom, died in 1979. She moved the team from Anaheim, Calif., to St. Louis in 1995, and has homes in St. Louis, Sedona, Ariz., and Malibu, Calif., Schwam said.
The Rams won their first Super Bowl after the 1999 season and lost to the New England Patriots after the 2001 season. But the franchise hasn't had a winning record since 2003 and is 3-10 this season with three games remaining.
Team president John Shaw said on Monday that the franchise would retain coach Scott Linehan for a third season. Linehan led the team to an 8-8 record last year but the Rams have been decimated by injuries this season with 11 players on injured reserve and quarterback Marc Bulger and running back Steven Jackson both missing significant time.
