Commanders rookie Robinson back in practice fewer than three weeks after shooting

·1-min read

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.
