OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Although the Los Angeles Rams have waived Stedman Bailey, they intend to keep the receiver around the team this season while he continues to recover from his gunshot wounds.

Bailey is headed to the Rams' reserve non-football injury list after clearing waivers, coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday.

Bailey was shot last November while sitting in a car in Miami with his cousin and two children. He survived and underwent numerous medical procedures, but hasn't been cleared to resume a football career.

While he continues to heal, the Rams intend to introduce Bailey to other aspects of football. Bailey has been with the Rams in their new offseason home during organized team activities, and he will continue to work with their coaching staff.
