Rookie Robinson returns to practice less than three weeks after being shot
Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson is back on the practice field under three weeks after he was shot in a reported attempted armed robbery.
The 23-year-old took to Instagram to confirm he was completing drills over a fortnight on from suffering two gunshot wounds to the glute and leg on August 28.
"Brian Robinson continues to make progress in his recovery from multiple gunshot wounds," read a team statement. "He was on a stationary bike Wednesday.
"On Thursday he was doing agility drills. [He] still has a long way to go, but his progress is certainly incredible."
Robinson was a third round pick for the Commanders, and had been tipped for a significant role this season after an impressive preseason.
He was placed on the team's non-football injury list ahead of the start of the new campaign, meaning he could return as soon as the fifth game if deemed fit.
