Washington Redskins wide receiver Aldrick Robinson is a promising, budding star in Mike Shanahan's offense.

So after the freakish end zone crash he had during warm-ups last week with safety Brandon Meriweather, fans and coaches alike became understandably concerned with the receiver's well-being.

On Friday, five days after the collision, Robinison had some comforting, and insightful things to say to the media.

“I’m feeling good,” Robinson said following Friday's practice at Redskins Park, “Everything is back to normal now.”

Robinson described the experience as “definitely bizarre” and “scary.”

He was lingering around one of the end zones, headphones on, when Meriweather just came from nowhere and slammed right on into him.

“I was just out there lost,” Robinson said.

Following the hit, Robinson lay on the ground in a fog. 

"I started hearing everybody saying that, ‘He’s knocked out. He’s knocked out.’ I couldn’t move and I was trying to wake up but I couldn’t. So I was out of there,” Robinson described with some eerie details, his feelings immediately after being hit.

Robinson admitted that his headphones were directly responsible for his lack of awareness last Sunday, but maintains that the incident will not keep his headphones off his head during future pregame warm ups.

“I’m just going to have my head up," he said. "It’s just one of those things that you wish you weren’t there at the time.”

Robinson was examined and cleared by doctors last Monday, allowing him to go back to practice, and he is listed as probable for Sunday's home game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Meanwhile, Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather, the player who ran into Robinson, has a knee sprain and will not play in the Falcons game. Meriweather's injury from the collision was limited to his knee.

Players wearing headphones during pregame warm ups have drawn the ire of Redskins color commentator and former star quarterback Sonny Jurgenson. In a mostly unrecognized incident, Jurgerson had given words of criticism to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III for wearing headphones in warm-ups. Ever the diplomat, Griffin appeased Jurgerson and removed them.
