Brian Robinson of the Washington Commanders returns to team facilities after being discharged from hospital… following a shooting Sunday night during an attempted robbery
- Commanders captured the moment as the trainers looked back at “B-Rob” from the hospital on Tuesday
- The investigation into the attempted robbery that led to the injuries is ongoing
- Robinson could return to the field sometime this year if he rehabs
Brian Robinson Jr. not only survived a scary encounter, but returned to the delight of his teammates.
The rookie, who ran back from Alabama, showed up at the Commanders’ practice facilities on Tuesday after being discharged from the hospital that day.
He was greeted by teammates and coaches and even remembered completing a rookie task of bringing snacks for the RB room.
Robinson met with team doctors in Washington at the team facility Tuesday to determine his next steps toward rehabilitation.
Hope remains that he could return this season, although he was shot in the leg and hip on Sunday when two armed suspects – believed to be teenagers – tried to steal his car as he was leaving a seafood restaurant. Robinson reportedly wrestled a gun from a carjacker but was shot in the lower leg and hip by the second.

According to Metro Police communications director Dustin Sternbeck, Robinson suffered “a couple of gunshot wounds to his lower extremities.”
Police have identified a couple of potential suspects and have also recovered a gun and the stolen vehicle the couple was driving.
Taking to Instagram, Robinson announced that “the surgery went well,” and Commanders head coach Ron Rivera repeated that report to a assembled media audience on Monday.
“He’s very lucky,” Rivera said. “He’s fine. It will be a matter of time before he’s out here again. There is no timetable, but everything was very positive.
“It’s all about the healing process and as soon as he’s well enough to come onto the field the doctors have to discharge him and we’ll go from there. So far everything is positive.”
The third-round pick remains out indefinitely, complicating the commanders’ backfield situation. Veterans Antonio Gibson and JD McKissic remain with the team, but Robinson should contribute as part of a committee.
After an amazing preseason, Robinson is hoping to bounce back and return sometime this season
