Ram cornerback Robert Bailey, who had the tip of his left ring finger torn off in Sunday's game, had it sewn back on Monday morning in Detroit. Bailey is sidelined for the season. Left tackle Gerald Perry was found to have torn cartilage in his left knee and season-ending surgery is scheduled for today. Coach John Robinson said that middle linebacker Frank Stams would probably finally be activated off the injured list this week.

Tell Robert Bailey not to worry about being called the scapegoat for the Rams' fiasco with Atlanta. I understand Jim Everett got one of the Falcons' game balls. BOB HARDMAN Orange The NFL game becomes increasingly cerebral, which makes the quarterback position extremely difficult. Jim Everett has the physical tools, but makes one wonder what happens between his ears! He's probably a lousy poker and gin player because his on-field gambles are atrocious. When ball control is called for, he looks like a high school junior.

"Not quite what you're looking for in terms of size and speed . . ." --from Joel Buchsbaum's 1991 Draft Review Clearly, Robert Bailey is taking some giant steps toward convincing the Rams otherwise. Just the other day he took a few big strides and leaped to swat away a pass intended for Flipper Anderson, one of the fastest receivers in the NFL, eliciting this praise from Coach John Robinson: "That's winning football, Robert Bailey. Way to go."

Michael Irvin, the Dallas Cowboys' all-pro receiver, has vivid memories of Ram cornerback Robert Bailey, who in 1987 was a sophomore defender trying to impress his coaches at the University of Miami when Irvin was starring there as a senior. "You tell Bailey I taught him everything he knows," Irvin said jokingly on a conference call with reporters this week. "Bailey's a little hitter now, he'll try to hit me. I'm going to kill his . . . if he tries to hit me in any way.

If Chuck can do it, why can't you? That could have been the first line of the letter Mike Pagel received from the new Ram coaching staff this spring, playing off Coach Chuck Knox's victory in a national-ad campaign diet-off during which he lost more than 60 pounds. But the Knox regime doesn't deal in cute stuff, and the letter had more of a militant tone. It was strongly worded enough to make anyone want to get slim fast.

Todd Lyght was on the bench with an injured shoulder and Robert Bailey was on the field, staring into the eyes of Mark Duper. Duper, who has almost 500 catches and more than 8,000 receiving yards in his career, already had scored a touchdown on a long pass and the second quarter had just started. Bailey, a second-year player who had one--count 'em one--tackle and one pass defensed in his NFL career before this season, had practiced all week to play bump-and-run in the Rams' nickel package.

A calm, composed Robert Bailey apologized to Ram coaches and players Friday for his outburst in the locker room after Thursday night's 30-24 loss to Atlanta. Bailey, the starting right cornerback, picked up a chair and had to be restrained from attacking a teammate after the Rams blew a 17-3 lead at the Georgia Dome. "I told the coaches and players how I felt and that I shouldn't have done that because that was an embarrassment to the team and to myself," Bailey said.

Two weeks into training camp with the Rams, and with the exception of some scrimmage fisticuffs, it's been a snoozer. The head coach does not exactly wax poetic, the vice president in charge of signing and trading personnel won't tell you what day of the week it is, and so why open the notebook? Most of the players are beginning to sound like Jim Everett. How many times can you write about the guy with the tattoo on his leg or another Shane Conlan injury?

Robert Bailey has a dream. He'd be the first to admit that it's not of Martin Luther King Jr. proportions, but you can bet King would have approved. Bailey, a Ram cornerback, wants the rest of the world to know that NFL football is really a rainbow of racial and cultural diversity. And he's going to spread his message through a unique international football camp.
