NFL player Brian Robinson was shot while attempting carjacking in Washington, DC, but recovered Sunday with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police and his team.

The attack in the 1,000-block of H Street Northeast was reported at 12:08 a.m. Sunday, Washington Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.

The victim suffered more than one gunshot wound and was taken to hospital, police said. The department did not name the victim.

On Sunday evening, the commanders confirmed that the 23-year-old running back, a rookie, had been shot.

NBC Washington reported that Robinson argued with suspects after they tried to grab his Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The reported collision may have hastened the shooting.

Police said a white Toyota Camry was caught by nearby surveillance cameras, and they’d like to speak to anyone associated with it.

Robinson, who played college ball for the University of Alabama, was selected by Washington in the third round of the 2022 NFL drawing.

The team said in a statement that players and staff were with Robinson’s side on Sunday.

Head coach Ron Rivera said he visited Robinson on Sunday evening.

“He is in a good mood and wanted me to thank everyone for their kind words, prayers and support,” he said said. “He wants his teammates to know that he appreciates them all for reaching out and that he loves them and that he will be back soon doing what he does best.”
