The NFL lifted Stedman Bailey‘s four-game drug suspension, but according to Rams coach Jeff Fisher (via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, on Twitter) the embattled wideout probably won’t play football again.
The Rams will place the third-year receiver on the non-football injury list, Zac Jackson of Pro Football Talk reports.
Bailey sustained two gunshot wounds to the head last month and underwent more than six hours of surgery as a result. Fisher said his assessment of the fourth-year receiver’s future was related to the shooting, but the fourth-year Rams coach did not elaborate further.
The 25-year-old Bailey caught 12 passes and one touchdown this season in eight games (three starts). He caught 45 passes for a career-best 430 yards last season. Bailey made eight career starts in St. Louis.
Chosen in the third round of the 2013 draft, Bailey has one more year left on his Rams contract.
