No matter where your rooting allegiance lies, if there is one, during the Washington Commanders game against the Tennessee Titans, this Sunday, there is at least one person we know that we should all be rooting for once he takes the field.

The Commanders announced today that rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. has been designated to return to practice this week. Robinson, who was shot twice on August 28 in a suspected armed robbery attempt, has a good chance to make his regular-season debut Sunday against the Titans at FedExField.

It took Robinson less than three weeks to return to the practice field and has somehow recovered fast enough to play in an NFL game just six weeks after reportedly being shot once in the rear end and once in the knee.

Robinson was selected in the third round of the NFL draft out of Alabama and was expected to contribute immediately to Washington’s offense. If he does play Sunday, it’s unclear if he’ll start, but playing in any role is nothing short of miraculous.

Kickoff between Washington and Tennessee is slated for a 1 p.m. ET start time, televised on CBS.
