Brian Robinson Jr., a former Alabama Crimson Tide running back, previously sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Robinson Jr. was near an attempted carjacking on Monday, August 28th, when he was shot. Now, Robinson has stated that the surgery went well, but there is no timetable for his return.
Brian Robinson has spoken out for the first time since being shot in D.C. on Sunday. He revealed on Monday that he had surgery for his injuries, adding that everything “went well.” Less than 24 hours ago, the Washington Commanders tailback was hit by bullets amid what appeared to be a robbery attempt.
He shared the positive message on his social media page. In the message, he expressed gratitude for everyone’s prayers… and concluded, “God is great!” Meanwhile, Commanders head coach Ron Rivera also shared some good news about the 23-year-old.
On Monday morning, he told reporters, “The doctors were very positive with him, and he was very positive as well.” According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Robinson was hit in the glute and lower leg during the incident. Rivera stated that there is currently no timetable for the football player’s return to the field.
He’s doing well. It’ll just be a matter of time before he’s back out here. There is no timeline, but as I said, everything was very positive.
The former Alabama star was selected by the Commanders in the third round of this year’s NFL draft. Before the shooting, he was having a huge preseason, with some suggesting he could have been the team’s starting running back when the season begins next month. Although no arrests have been made in the case, police believe they have identified two potential suspects.
An investigation is now underway. Let’s wait and see what happens next. It’s comforting to know he’s safe and sound. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
