Former Alabama RB Brian Robinson Jr. makes NFL debut only weeks after getting shot in attempted carjacking
Former Alabama running back Brian Robinson Jr. was the victim of a carjacking incident back in August that he was shot during and sustained non-life-threatening injuries from.
Robinson has been sidelined ever since and there was a chance he could miss significant time, but he’s now back on the field making his NFL debut just weeks after. Robinson has been out for roughly 6 weeks but got his chance to shine on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans in the first week he was eligible to return.
The Commanders rusher currently totals 2 carries for 7 yards while leading a team in rushing that has largely relied on the pass to this point as Washington leads Tennessee 10-7. He received a standing ovation from the crowd as he was able to finally show his stuff in front of the fans after experiencing immediate adversity in his transition.

Robinson is expected to evolve into a standout as he was for the Crimson Tide at the pro level after he finished out his college career with 2,704 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns.
