Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey remains in a Florida hospital after being shot in the head twice last week, but word on Monday was positive about the process he’s making after having surgery.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher offered an update on Bailey’s condition during his meeting with the media and said that the wideout was still in intensive care as he recovers, but that there was an encouraging development that he was able to share with the team over the weekend.

“He’s improving,” Fisher said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “One thing that was really, really cool [and] really, really emotional was that he obviously had intensive surgery — he was in surgery for over six hours — to remove one bullet. There were two wounds to the head, two shots. He was in a medically induced coma for obvious reason to keep the swelling down in the brain. … His girlfriend texted a picture to some of his teammates yesterday in the locker room [before the game] of him signing his name on a piece of paper, so [we] got to share that with the team yesterday and it was good news.”

Fisher said he didn’t have any more information on the investigation into the shooting, which saw Bailey and another man injured while sitting in a car with three others, including two minors, who were not injured.
