After going undrafted in the 2016 NFL Draft, Fox signed with the Los Angeles Rams on May 4, 2016 as an undrafted free agent.[1] On September 3, 2016, he was waived by the Rams as part of final roster cuts.[2] The next day, he was signed to the Rams' practice squad.[3] He was promoted to the active roster on October 8, 2016.[4] He was released on October 11, 2016 and was re-signed to the practice squad.[5] He was promoted again by the Rams on December 15, 2016.[6]

On September 10, 2017, in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts, Fox recorded a safety for the Rams when he took down Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett in the end zone.[7]

On May 24, 2018, Fox tore his ACL during organized team activities, effectively ending his 2018 season.[8] He was placed on injured reserve on August 31, 2018.[9] Without Fox, the Rams reached Super Bowl LIII where they lost 13-3 to the New England Patriots.
