Robinson shared the news in a brief message on her Instagram Stories on Monday, writing, “Thanks for the prayers! God is great!”
Robinson suffered two gunshot wounds to the lower extremities and was taken to a local hospital, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said. The shooting happened in the 1000 block of H Street NE, police said. Two suspects fled the scene and officers recovered a gun nearby, Sternbeck said.
“He suffered life-threatening injuries and is currently being treated at the hospital, where crew officers are on site with him. We ask that you respect Brian’s privacy at this time,” commanders said.
Generals head coach Ron Rivera visited with Robinson and said he was in “good spirits.”
CNN has reached out to the NFL for comment.
Robinson Jr. was drafted in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft out of the University of Alabama. He did not play in the team’s final regular season game against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night.
