Last year, Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey was shot in the head and hospitalized, causing him to miss the remainder of the 2015 season. While he has been recovering well and hopes to get back on the field this year, his team did not believe he would be healthy enough to do so.
On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the Rams had waived Bailey with a non-football injury designation. He has not been doing on-field work at OTAs, but this does not mean his career with the team is completely over.
It was reported that Bailey might be offered a non-football role with the Rams if he is able to clear waivers.
Head coach Jeff Fisher said he will address the situation later on Wednesday.
