ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams receiver Stedman Bailey has undergone several hours of surgery in Florida for a bullet wound in the head. The team says he's stable but remains in intensive care.

Police say Bailey was shot Tuesday as he and four others were sitting in a car outside a home in the Miami area, where he went to high school. Another man also was wounded in the attack. Investigators say they're still looking for the shooter, who fired from another car.

Bailey was suspended this month for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and had two more weeks to go on that suspension. Rams coach Jeff Fisher says he doesn't expect Bailey to play again this season.

Bailey is in his third season with the Rams.
