Brian Robinson Designated to Return to Practice
NFL Week 5 – The Washington commanders have designated rookie running back Brian Robinson to return to practice this week, according to the team’s website.
Robinson was shot multiple times in Washington D.C. during an attempted carjacking, with bullets missing major ligaments and muscles in his lower body. Commanders head coach Ron Rivera announced last week that Robinson would receive medical evaluation to determine whether he was physically able to return to play. According to the Commanders website, Robinson’s debut could be as early as Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
The 98th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft rushed 14 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in two preseason appearances this past summer. Robinson joins a Commanders offense currently ranked 28th in DVOA and 27th in offensive rushing DVOA. Washington’s current lead back, Antonion Gibson, currently sits 37th among running backs in both DVOA and DYAR.
