In a pretty remarkable story, the Washington Commanders are reportedly activating rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. after he was shot during a robbery attempt in Washington, D.C., in late August.
He is set to play in the team’s game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

On Aug. 28, he was shot twice, with both bullets hitting his right leg and traveling through his knee. Thankfully, the bullets didn’t hit any ligaments, tendons or bones. Robinson underwent surgery the next day.
It was obviously a scary situation, and many believed that his professional career was already over before it truly got started.
