Brian Robinson: Washington Commanders rookie undergoes surgery after being shot

Washington Commanders rookie Brian Robinson suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being shot

Washington Commanders rookie Brian Robinson underwent surgery after being shot during an attempted armed robbery or carjacking.

The Washington D.C. Police Department he told NFL.comexternal link that Robinson suffered two gunshot wounds to his “lower extremities” during the incident on Sunday.

On Monday, Robinson wrote on Instagram that “surgery went well.”

Commanders head coach Ron Rivera visited Robinson on Sunday night and said Robinson was “doing fine.”

Robinson was selected by the Commanders in the third round of the 2022 NFL draft and appeared in two preseason games this month, scoring a touchdown.

The incident occurred around 6:00 p.m. local time in the US capital. Police said two suspects had fled the scene and a firearm had been recovered nearby.

Speaking Monday, Rivera said he was “shocked” when told when it happened, and a team contingent, including players, visited Robinson in the hospital.

“He’s very lucky, it’s a very unfortunate situation, but he’s doing well,” he said.

“It’s really just about the healing process. Then once he’s well enough to go out on the field, the doctors will have to release him and then we’ll go from there. But like I said, it’s all been very positive so far. .

“He is a great young man, more than just a football player.”

Rivera said the players met before practice to talk about what happened, adding, “I know their hearts are heavy, a lot of them still think about Brian.”

The Commanders said in an opening statement on Sunday: “We have been made aware that Brian Robinson Jr. was the victim of an attempted armed robbery or carjacking in Washington DC.

“He sustained non-life-threatening injuries and is currently being treated at the hospital, where team officials are on site with him.”
