A couple of NFL insiders, including John Keim of ESPN, broke the news. Robinson was shot multiple times in the lower body in August during an attempted robbery. He had surgery and returned to training camp. Before the incident, the third-round pick of this year’s NFL Draft had positioned himself to be Washington’s starting running back. He still has a chance to perform the task.

Robinson has been removed from the league’s non-football injury (NFI) list, but the Commanders have 21 days to put him on its active roster. It is incredible to see Robinson’s strength from where the shooting happened to where he is now.

Crimson Tide fans want to see him excel in the pros because of what he gave to Alabama football.
