Brandon Banks In 'Stable Condition' After Being Involved In Double Stabbing

Redskins kickoff and punt returner Brandon Banks, who emerged as one of the most dynamic special teams player in the NFL, is in stable condition after being involved in a double stabbing outside a D.C. nightclub early Saturday morning, according to Tim Pernisko of NBC Washington

The altercation occurred a 3 p.m. outside "the Park," a D.C. nightclub in Northwest Washington D.C. Banks and a companion were attacked by a man with a knife. Banks' companion is in critical condition, while Banks is in stable condition with "superficial knife wounds." The three men were involved in a fight before one man stabbed both Banks and his companion. He is currently in custody. 

The diminutive Banks returned one kickoff and one punt for a touchdown this season, and also broke several other long runs over the course of the season. He started the year on the practice squad and ended it as arguably their second-most valuable offensive player.
