Redskins' Banks remains in hospital

Washington Redskins return specialist Brandon Banks will remain in the hospital for a third night after suffering superficial knife wounds during an early Saturday morning attack, according to a statement from his agent. The agent, James Gould, said Banks would be released within the next 24 hours.

"In response to the well wishes, many calls and concerns for Brandon Banks, he still remains in a local hospital for precautionary reasons and is expected to be released within 24 hours. He would like to thank everyone again for their concerns."

Banks' Redskins teammates have been reaching out to him through this entire ordeal. And I would imagine that coach Mike Shanahan will eventually use Banks' situation as an example of why players don't need to be shutting down nightclubs at 3 a.m. ET.
