Alabama football fans are in prayer for Brian Robinson Jr.

According to beat reporters for the Washington Commanders, Robinson was a victim of a shooting that involved an attempted robbery. He was shot multiple times, but Robinson did not sustain any life-threatening injuries. Several current and former Crimson Tide players expressed their concerns on Twitter. Ron Rivera, head coach of the Commanders, released a statement on Robinson’s progress. He gave an encouraging update on the rookie as Robinson turned in a great training camp performance.

The Tuscaloosa native was pushing Antonio Gibson for the starting job before the incident.

Hopefully, Robinson recovers strongly and returns to action soon.
