The unfathomable comeback story of Commanders running back Brian Robinson continues to get more unbelievable.
The rookie running back out of Alabama returned to the practice field on Wednesday, actually participating in on-field activities only weeks after being shot.
It's been 3.5 weeks since Robinson was shot multiple times in an attempted carjacking in D.C. on Sunday, Aug. 28. To imagine that he's back on the field running around after such a short amount of time is just incredibly fortunate.
Robinson still made the final 53-man roster and was placed on the Non-Football Injury (NFI) List only four days after the shooting, meaning he will miss at least the Commanders' first four regular-season games.
The most-damaging bullet wound for Robinson struck him in the right leg and reportedly went through his knee, amazingly missing all of the major parts of the knee (ligaments, tendons and bones included).
Robinson returned to the team facility soon after being released from the hospital and was first seen at practice with his Commanders teammates one week ago, where he was seen pedaling on a stationary bike and running ladder drills.
