Todd Gurley Elite Jersey

It’s Week 15. Depending on league structure, fantasy owners are either halfway through the first round of a four-week playoff run, or are keeping hopes of a championship (or a non-last-place finish) alive from week to week. Every game counts, starting Thursday night with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. the St. Louis Rams.

The good news? There aren’t many injury questions when it comes to fantasy players. Doug Martin is healthy, as is Mike Evans. Jameis Winston has no injury issues, nor does Austin Seferian-Jenkins (finally).

There is one key player for Tampa Bay who will miss this game. Wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who suffered a sprained MCL in Week 14, has already been ruled out for Thursday and could potentially miss multiple weeks. Fantasy owners who drafted Jackson already had to contend with him missing three weeks in the middle of the season, also the result of a knee injury. It’s possible there will be a need to replace him for another three weeks now.

On the Rams’ side of the ball, the only fantasy name of note is Todd Gurley(Todd Gurley Jersey). For those who drafted him and patiently kept him stashed until his Week 3 debut, it certainly paid off, especially in Weeks 4 through 11 when Gurley either rushed for more than 100 yards, found the end zone or both. In Week 14, after a few weeks of relative quiet, Gurley made some big noise, to the tune of 140 yards and two touchdowns, but he left the game early amid some concern of a knee injury.

Gurley later said he just “banged up” his knee, and the Rams sounded confident early in the week that he would play Thursday. Although he was listed on the practice injury report this week as limited Monday and Tuesday, it should be noted that the words “not injury related” appeared next to Gurley’s name. In other words, Gurley was granted some extra rest to start the week. After being listed as a full participant Wednesday with a probable tag next to his name, there is every expectation Gurley will play in the Rams’ final home game of the season on Thursday night.

Stedman Bailey Rams Jersey

St. Louis Rams third-year wide receiver Stedman Bailey(Stedman Bailey Jersey) is out of surgery and resting in the intensive care unit after being shot in a car in Florida on Tuesday night, the City of Miami Gardens Police Department said Wednesday.

Police did not describe the nature of Bailey’s injuries, but a source confirmed to ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he was shot twice in the head. A Rams source told ESPN’s Nick Wagoner that the team believes Bailey’s injuries are not life-threatening.

St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher said Bailey’s surgery took between four and six hours. However, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter surgery took nine hours.

Bailey’s cousin, Antwan Reeves, also was shot and was taken into surgery on Tuesday night, according to police. Two minors also were in the car when another vehicle drove by and fired shots, police said.

Reeves, who was the driver of the vehicle Bailey was in, was shot multiple times while attempting to shield the children in the car from bullets, the source told Anderson, and his wounds are more serious.

The children in the car were unharmed, police said.

Police said the incident took place at 8:45 p.m. at a Miami Gardens home, and they are looking for a light-colored, four-door sedan, which is possibly a Buick Regal.

Bailey’s hometown is Miramar, Florida, which is about 7 miles from Miami Gardens.

Fisher said Wednesday that he was aware Bailey was in South Florida.

“I was aware of where he was. I knew he was working out and he was taking care of himself, and he was getting ready to help us win games when his suspension was concluded,” he said.

Several of Bailey’s Rams teammates took to Twitter to offer their support and asked fans to keep him in their thoughts.

Earlier this month, the NFL suspended Bailey four games for violation of its substance abuse policy. Because he was suspended, Bailey was not made available to the media, but he took to his Instagram account to post an extended apology in which he referred to his choices as “idiotic” and “disgraceful.”

Bailey would have been eligible to return to the active roster Dec. 7.

Bailey also was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances before the 2014 season. That suspension was later reduced to two games after a change in the league’s policy.

Bailey, who was the Rams’ 2013 third-round pick out of West Virginia, had been the team’s third receiver for most of this season but was rarely involved in the offense. He had 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in the first eight games. His touchdown celebration against the Cardinals, in which he pretended to go to sleep in the corner of the end zone with the football as a pillow, drew a fine for using the ball as a prop during a celebration.
