Stedman Bailey, a wide receiver for the St. Louis Rams, is in critical but stable condition after being shot in the head on Tuesday night, according to the City of Miami Gardens Police Department.

Police didn't go into detail, but ESPN confirms that he was shot twice in the head while sitting in a car.

Bailey is expected to undergo surgery sometime today. The Rams do not believe that his injury will be life threatening.

Bailey's cousin was also shot as he tried to protect the children who were also in the car with them. Both children were unharmed, but his cousin is harmed.

The Rams released a statement Tuesday night saying they were aware of the incident but did not release details of what happened:

"We are aware Stedman Bailey was involved in an incident this evening," the Rams said. "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."

Earlier this month, Bailey was suspended from play due to a substance abuse violation. At the time, he posted a long apology on Instagram where he called his choices "idiotic" and "disgraceful."

He was also suspended for two games last season for taking performance enhancing drugs.

The Rams expected him to return to the active roster on December 7, 2015.

Bailey, who came into the league in 2013 after a tenure at West Virginia, was the team's third receiver for the season. He has had 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in the first eight games.
