Brian Robinson Jr. Returns To Practice For First Time Since Being Shot In Leg Twice On Aug. 28th

This is awesome.

Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. took another major step forward in his road to recover Thursday less than three weeks after he was shot during a suspected armed robbery attempt.

Robinson, who was shot twice in the leg on August 28th, returned to the practice filed for the first time since the incident. The third-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft participated in individual drills on the sidelines and showed signs of making impressive strides:

Robinson won’t be able to return to the field for at least another four weeks. Last week, Ron Rivera told reporters that Robinson was of crutches after the swelling in his knee had gone down. Robinson’s first NFL career game could potentially come on Oct. 9, when the Commanders host the Titans at 1 p.m. ET (CBS).
