Bailey, who was in the  car with his cousin and small children was shot twice in the head and his  cousin was hit multiple times and is facing life-threatening injuries. Although  the  wide receiver took 2 shots to the head it’s reported that he is in critical but stable condition.

He is scheduled  to undergo  surgery this morning ESPN has reported.


The St. Louis Rams issued a statement late Tuesday as the news broke.

We are aware Stedman Bailey was involved in an incident this evening. We have spoken with Stedman and he is in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. We are gathering facts about the situation and will provide updates as we learn more.

Bailey was a third-round pick in 2013 out of West Virginia and his career has been plagued  with issues since.  Last year the league suspended him for four games for violating the policy on performance-enhancing substances. The suspension was later reduced to 2 games.

Bailey is also currently on   suspension for violating the same policy and is expected to return to the  game December 7th.
