Banks Returns to Field Three Months After Stabbing

Redskins wide receiver Brandon Banks returned to the practice field Wednesday morning just three months after being stabbed outside a Washington D.C. nightclub. Banks spent five days in the hospital before a chest tube was removed and he was released.

Banks told Ryan O’ Halloran of CSNWashington, he is “probably 90 percent healthy. I’m just trying to get the rust off my knees and my back. … I’m back ready to play football.”

“I’ve been in tough situations before,” he said. “I’ve lost loved ones. I’ve been hurt before. I’ve been in troubling situations before. It’s another hurdle to jump. Hopefully, I don’t have to jump another hurdle.”
