ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cornerback Janoris Jenkins is expected to be in the St. Louis Rams lineup for Thursday night's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Coach Jeff Fisher says Jenkins was a full participant in practice after being cleared from the concussion protocol and is probable. The final step was an evaluation for his reaction to exertion.

Running back Todd Gurley also got more work after getting rested earlier in the week. He leads rookies in rushing yards and needs 25 for 1,000.

The Rams also said wide receiver Stedman Bailey is out of intensive care at a Miami-area hospital. Bailey, shot twice in the head in late November, could be released from the hospital in the next week or so.
