Bailey (head) was reinstated from the suspended list Monday, Howard Balzer of reports. Bailey is likely out for the season after he was shot in the head In Miami on Nov. 24, but the Rams have been granted a roster exemption while they determine the next course of action. More than likely, he'll land on the reserve/NFI list, which would officially ensure that he doesn't play again in 2015.
Bailey (head) is slowly making progress but is still in intensive care after being shot in the head Nov. 24, Joe Lyons of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. It looks like Bailey is at least out of the woods, although it took six hours of surgery and a medically induced coma. It's going to be a long recovery for Bailey, and his career is certainly in jeopardy after such a scary event.
Bailey has been suspended four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. With Bailey -- who has recorded 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in eight game to date -- set to miss time, it's now understandable that the Rams are expected to work out wideouts Hakeem Nicks, Wes Welker and Vincent Brown, per ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Bailey was held off the stat sheet on Sunday as the Rams defeated the 49ers 27-6. Bailey has all but disappeared since the bye week, with one catch for eight yards in two games. He's had more than one catch in only three of six games and is not even getting looks his way lately.
Bailey caught his lone target for 8 yards in a 24-6 win against the Browns on Sunday. Bailey had had a couple better games as of late, but that didn't carry over to Sunday. This was the third time in five games he's tallied one or less receptions, and Bailey's potential isn't enough to make him too much of a fantasy option right now.
