Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson is back on the field less than three weeks after being shot in the leg.

On Thursday, the 23-year-old posted videos on his Instagram Story showing his intensive training, along with the caption, "Day 1 back on the field 🙏🏾."

The Commanders' media team said that Robinson "continues to make progress in his recovery from multiple gunshot wounds." He was in the gym on the stationary bike on Wednesday, they said, before trying out agility drills the next day.

"Robinson still has a long way to go, but his progress is certainly incredible," they said.
