It has been a long road for Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr., a third-round pick from Alabama.
In August, the Commanders placed him on the non-football injured reserve list after he suffered gunshot wounds in his right leg during an attempted robbery. On Sunday, Robinson led Washington in rushing with 73 yards on 20 carries in a 23-21 win Sunday over the Green Bay Packers.
Robinson has been trying to get more comfortable with reps after recovering quickly from the injuries. An impressive run after contact Sunday showed what he can do.
