Geez! Based on the headline, it sounds like it should be lights out for this guy, but apparently not.
In Miami, Stedman Bailey, a receiver for the St. Louis Rams, has been hospitalized after being shot in the head Tuesday night
Bailey, who is from the Miami area, suffered a head wound and will undergo surgery Wednesday for the non-life threatening injury, according to NFL Media.
Specifically, Bailey, 25, was reportedly shot twice in the head while sitting in a vehicle with three relatives and was in stable condition at a Miami hospital. The driver of the vehicle, Bailey’s cousin, is in critical condition after he was shot “many times” while shielding two children in the car, according to NFL Media.
The Rams, in a statement issued early Wednesday morning, said they were aware Bailey was involved in an incident Tuesday evening.
“We have spoken with Stedman and he is in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition,” the team said. “We are gathering facts about the situation and will provide updates as we learn more.”
Bailey, who has 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown this season, is serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on substance abuse.
