Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. was shot multiple times on Sunday.
According to police information from Washington, obtained by the “Washington Post”, the 23-year-old athlete was injured in an attempted car theft, but there is no fear for his life.
In a Twitter post, the Washington Police Department even wrote of being “looking for two underage black males, with shoulder length dreads and wearing a black or brown sweater with a yellow smiley face on it.”

Robinson was a third-round pick (98th overall) of the Commanders in 2022. Several experts even see him taking the starting job from Antonio Gibson in his first year.
