Commanders RB Brian Robinson working on side at practice

Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. was shot multiple times during an attempted robbery in August, and two and a half weeks later, he's making some pretty incredible progress as he attempts to return to the practice field.

On Wednesday, multiple Washington beat reporters noted that Robinson was doing work on the side at practice. ESPN said the rookie was completing some agility work, and several reporters observed Robinson on the stationary bike. Per The Athletic, Robinson was wearing a wrap over his right knee/lower leg -- the area where he was shot.
