Jeff Fisher: Stedman Bailey in “evaluation process” of possible comeback

The Rams held a meeting with players in California recently to share information about the move to Los Angeles and wide receiver Stedman Bailey was in attendance.

That illustrates Bailey’s desire to be on the field in L.A. with the Rams, although the chances of that happening remain very much up in the air four months after Bailey was shot in the head. Bailey has done well in his recovery and is working out in hope that he will be able to resume his football career, although Rams coach Jeff Fisher said this week that it is too early to know if that’s possible.

“Sted is currently in the evaluation process, seeking numerous opinions from neurologists and the like,” Fisher said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Just to see if he can not only play, but continue with a rigorous physical rehab program that will put him in position to play.”

Fisher said the Rams “don’t think there’s any history out there” of a player recovering from head wounds like the ones Bailey suffered and then returning to the football field. Bailey may not make that history, but the fact that there’s a discussion of it is a great step given where Bailey was in November.

  1. I STILL want to know what happened that led him to get shot before I have any sympathy for him. And, if it turns out that he was doing something he shouldn’t have been doing that also put his poor family in danger, I’m open to wishing the perps had finished the job.

    This opinion is so ridiculous you just have to laugh at it. Whatever he was doing, he probably didn’t deserve to get murdered.

  3. possibly he was trying to score some weed does he deserve to be shot for that? maybe they were innocents in the wrong place at the wrong time, who knows simply put i will wish him a full recovery and hope he can make it back to play for my rams god bless sted!!

  4. I would love to know what parts of his brain were injured. That would give a better idea of what he has to go through to make it back.
