Tom Pelissero is reporting that Robinson was shot twice in the lower part of his body.
My understanding is at least two bullets struck #Commanders RB Brian Robinson in the lower body. As @MikeGarafolo said, Robinson is hospitalized in stable condition. A terrible situation that could’ve been even worse.
