Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson continues to make strides after being shot this offseason. The rookie out of Alabama was taken in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, but an off-the-field setback put a halt to his season outlook.
Robinson was involved in a carjacking that resulted in non-life-threatening injuries after he was shot in the leg. After a successful surgery, there was optimism that he could get back to the field quicker than anticipated. Still, there was no timetable for a return.
He appears to be doing everything in his power to make his debut.
Robinson was at practice for the first time on Wednesday, and now, he’s done the unthinkable. Thursday, he was seen running agility drills on the ladder, and looking pretty impressive in the process.

Fans were certainly excited to see the running back continuing his progress.
Robinson looked to be on his way to playing a key role in the Washington offense, posting numbers of 14 carries, 57 yards, and a score in two preseason games. Unfortunately, the carjacking cut that productive preseason short.
Folks are eager to see him suit up, and they’re impressed with how quickly he’s worked back.
