Brandon Banks' agent James Gould has released a statement on his clients current situation:
STATEMENT FROM JAMES GOULD, AGENT FOR REDSKINS WR BRANDON BANKS ON BEHALF OF BRANDON BANKS’ FAMILY, FRIENDS, TEAMMATES AND REDSKINS FANS:
“Early this morning, Brandon Banks was injured outside of a nightclub in Washington D.C. while coming to the aid of a life-long friend, who was attacked by an assailant who was wielding a knife. His friend was critically wounded and was taken to a local hospital where surgery was performed. Brandon was injured by the assailant with a surface knife wound on his side which will require stitches. He is recovering in a local hospital and is expected to be released within 24 hours.
“Brandon was not involved in any wrongdoing and was not implicated in any way.
“Brandon’s immediate concern is for his life-long friend who is like a brother to him. He would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for him and his life-long friend.”
It's certainly good news that Banks is going to be alright. That being said, it's important to be mindful that Banks is still going through a tough time, as one of his close friends is apparently in much worse condition.
The Redskins have also confirmed that Banks was indeed involved in the altercation, but have not provided any further statements to this point.
