Brandon Bank’s release from the hospital on Friday will mark the beginning of his recovery which can last up to 4 weeks.

Pro Football Talk reports:

Six days after suffering a stabbing, Redskins return man Brandon Banks has been released from the hospital.

Agent James Gould announced the development, in a statement released by the Redskins.

“Brandon Banks was released from Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington earlier today,” Gould said.  “The tube was removed from his chest, and his lung is fully inflated.  Brandon should be fully recovered and able to resume offseason training in three to four weeks.  He will continue to follow up with Redskins team physician, Dr. Anthony Casolaro throughout this process.

“Brandon would like to thank Dr. Casolaro and all of the nurses at Virginia Hospital Center for their care and all of his fans, teammates and the Redskins family for all of their support.”

Banks’ injuries originally were described as superficial.  Earlier this week, the true details began to emerge.
