St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey was hospitalized after being shot twice in the head in the Miami area on Tuesday, the National Football League said on its official website, citing an
unnamed source who was informed of the incident.

Bailey, 25, was in critical but stable condition on Wednesday, his team said in an online statement.

The Rams are yet to disclose details of the incident.
The only statement gotten from the team was that Bailey was hospitalized after an unspecified incident.
They also said that they are in touch with the player.

“We are gathering facts about the situation and will provide updates as we learn more,” the Rams said
in their statement.

NFL.com, citing its unnamed source, said Bailey was a passenger in a car in Miami Gardens when someone pulled up and began shooting, striking
both Bailey and the driver.

Bailey has non-life-threatening injuries, and the driver has life-threatening injuries, NFL.com
reported.
The NFL.com report said the shooter was unknown.

Bailey has been serving a four-game suspension without pay for violating the league’s substance
abuse policy. He’s eligible to return to the Rams’ active roster on December 7, one day after the
team plays the Arizona Cardinals.

A third-round draft pick for the Rams in 2013, Bailey left West Virginia University with the school’s second-highest number of receptions: 210.

NFL players from across the country offered support and prayers for Bailey’s recovery.

“Prayers out to my dawg Stedman Bailey man,” San Diego Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett tweeted.

Running back Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers echoed that sentiment.
“prayers to my brother Stedman Bailey,” he tweeted.

Bailey has played in eight games this season, with 12 receptions for 182 yards and a touchdown.
