Redskins’ Banks has tube inserted in chest
WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington Redskins kick returner Brandon Banks had a tube inserted in his chest and remained hospitalized following a stabbing.
Banks’ agent, James Gould, said Tuesday that Banks is still expected to have a 100 percent recovery from the stabbing that occurred outside a D.C. nightclub early Saturday.
“He has a left chest wound from the knife,” Gould said. “He has a tube inserted in, and until the tube’s removed, he won’t be released from the hospital.”
Police said the stabbing happened outside an upscale downtown nightclub after a man got into an argument with two men and stabbed them. Banks’ friend, Christopher Nixon, received more serious wounds and remains hospitalized. A suspect _ Jason Shorter, 24, of Lanham, Md. _ has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.
Banks, 23, made a quick impression as an undrafted rookie out of Kansas State last season. He returned a punt 53 yards the first time he touched the ball in an NFL game and had a 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. He was also the lightest player in the NFL, listed at 5-foot-7, 155 pounds.
Gould said the injuries from the stab wound should have no effect on Banks’ football career.
