Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. was shot multiple times during an attempted robbery earlier this month, but he is alive and doing well in recovery. On Wednesday, Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said Robinson is now off crutches and that the swelling in his knee has gone down "an awful lot," per The Washington Post. 

Just days after surgery, Robinson was back in the facility visiting with teammates and coaches. Despite the unfortunate situation, the Alabama product was lucky in more ways than one.
