“I just remember it being probably one of the lowest points of my life,” Robinson recalled earlier this week. “ … I never thought I’d be in a situation where I had to question or be questioned if I would be able to return back to playing football.”

However, a little over two weeks after getting shot, the Alabama native was already getting himself ready for a return. He continued clearing hurdles while making his way back to the field.

Before the scary incident, Robinson had been having a very solid training camp for the Commanders. He impressed enough that it seemed like he would eventually take over the starting spot from Antonio Gibson sometime during the 2022 season.

Robinson was selected by the Commanders in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft from the University of Alabama.

For the Crimson Tide last season, the 23-year-old carried the ball 271 times for 1,343 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also showed off his ability to catch passes out of the backfield by snagging 35 passes for 296 yards and two scores.

Fans are surely hoping to see a lot from Robinson on Sunday, but it seems like the Commanders are going to bring him along slowly.

“While he may eventually be the starter, Robinson will likely backup Antonio Gibson on Sunday,” wrote NFL insider Ian Rapoport. “The plan is for about 20 snaps for Robinson.”

It’s arguably the best feel-good story of the season so far, and many fans across the league are surely going to tune in to watch the game.

Washington could definitely use a boost from the youngster, as it currently sits in last place in the NFC East with a 1-3 record and has looked pretty bad on offense throughout the first few weeks of the season.
