Call it a miracle.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey is walking and talking again after being shot twice in the head last month, TMZ Sports is reporting.

His agent, Tony Fleming, told the celebrity news site that Bailey is "getting back to himself" and is out of the ICU, but still hospitalized in a special physical therapy facility in Florida.

"He is getting his strength back and just taking it one day at a time. He is scheduled to be released out of the hospital on the 23rd," Fleming said.

He added that the 25-year-old is grateful for the support of the Rams organization since the November 25 shooting.

"The Rams are great," Fleming said. "They have been talking to the doctors like once every few days staying on top of it."

According to ESPN, Bailey was sitting in a car in Miami Gardens with several people, including children, when a gunman opened fire on November 25. The shooter has yet to be identified and the motive of the shooting remains unknown. The incident occurred after the third-year wideout was suspended four games by the NFL earlier in November for violating the league's policy on substance abuse.
