St. Louis Rams reporter Dani Klupenger revealed Wednesday that Rams head coach Jeff Fisher told her he had seen a video of Bailey walking, which she noted is a "huge development."
On Tuesday, Joe Lyons of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch provided additional comments from Fisher speaking on Bailey's recovery:
He's improving. 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.

We have spoken with Stedman and he is in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. We are gathering facts about the situation and will provide updates as we learn more."
