It’s an amazing development that underscores the incredibly good fortune of Robinson, who had a bullet pass through his knee but not seriously injure the ligaments and cartilage and bone.
The return to practice opens a 21-day window for a return to the active roster. Presumably, he’ll be back sooner than later. He could play, in theory, as soon as Sunday, against the Titans.
Robinson, a third-round pick from Alabama, had essentially won the starting tailback position before the shooting. Given that he’s now healthy and ready to go, he’s likely destined to officially claim the top spot on the depth chart.
