Former Alabama running back Brian Robinson received great news this week when the Washington Commanders have announced that Robinson has been designated to return to practice this week.

Washington doctors over the weekend determined that Robinson was physically able to return to action, and Robinson could make his regular season debut against the Tennessee Titans at FedExField on Sunday.

Robinson suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his right leg during an armed robbery attempt in Washington before the Commanders’ regular season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Robinson did not suffer any significant damage to his ligaments.

About 10 days ago, Robinson returned to the field and ran routes.

“It’s one of those very fortunate situations that that wasn’t any worse, and that’s the first major positive,” coach Ron Rivera said last week. “The second positive is how he’s handled it, the way he’s reacted to it, the way he’s been getting himself back.”

Robinson played at Alabama from 2017 to 2021 and collected 2,704 rushing yards and 31 career touchdowns. He was taken in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Commanders.
