Washington Commander’s rookie RB Brian Robinson who was shot in the leg in an attempted robbery, may possibly return by week five, reported Adam Schefter of ESPN. In the season opener, Robinson was absent which left the Commanders with Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic at the Rb position. While they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars in a close game, the real thing to be proud of is the ungodly return of Robinson.
Robinson made a statement in the offseason by performing at a high level. He was proving to be a true asset in the run game, as well as, the passing game. Another piece of great news for the Washington Commanders is that the return of 2021 first-round pick Chase Young may be returning midseason as well. The commanders have a very young, youthful, and talented team going forward if they can remain healthy.
Robinson is currently on the Non-Football Injury list, which automatically makes him ineligible to play the first five weeks of the regular season. However, his return is highly anticipated as he was phenomenal throughout the preseason and even more electric in college. Robinson recorded 270 carries for 1337 yards and 14 touchdowns, per Hosted Stats.
The Washington Commanders Miracles Keep Continuing
The Dallas Cowboys are coming off an embarrassing performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Additionally to the loss, the Cowboys will be without their starting QB Dak Prescott for six to eight weeks due to a hand injury, per Sporting News.
“Dak Prescott is expected to have surgery Monday on a right thumb injury and miss 6-8 weeks, according to multiple sources,” tweeted Todd Archer. He will meet with the team’s hand specialist on Monday, but sources said he will have a pin and plate inserted to stabilize the joint.”

“I thought I jammed it, I’ve hit my hand on helmets or bodies a lot in my career, and never really had anything, maybe a jammed a finger here,” Prescott said. “That’s what I thought it was. On the next play, I couldn’t grip the ball, I let the sideline know. When I got off, I told the trainers the same thing — ‘If I yank it, it’ll be OK.'”
