Being shot sucks, but Brian Robinson should thank his lucky stars for where he got shot because it could’ve changed everything for him going forward.
By all accounts, the Washington Commanders rookie running back because his injuries were not life-threatening and he didn’t spend much time hospitalized.
Additionally, it appears Robinson’s football career won’t be affected because he avoided serious damage to his knee, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
“Apparently [the bullet] missed all of the major parts of the knee–ligaments, tendons, bones,” Garafolo said.
As a result, Robinson was placed on the Commanders’ active 53-man roster on Tuesday and was not put on the non-football injury list, sparking hope that he could return this season.
The third-round pick out of Alabama was projected to be Washington’s starting running back coming out of training camp after outperforming Antonio Gibson this summer.
