In another statement from Brandon Banks’ agent, James Gould, released tonight, the Redskins PR who was stabbed last weekend has been moved to an Arlington, Va., hospital, the knife nicked his lung, and he might need surgery.

Gould’s statement, via the Redskins:

“Brandon is doing fine; he has been moved to Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, under the care of Redskins team physician, Dr. Anthony Casolaro. The knife nicked his lung creating a pneunomothorax condition. He still has a chest tube inserted and it will remain until the wound heals and the lung remains inflated.

“We are hopeful that the tube will be removed by Friday, and if the lung does not respond then a commonly performed procedure using a scope will be performed to repair the lung. Brandon should be released within 48 hours afterward. We expect 100 percent recovery where he can resume his offseason training in two to four weeks.

“We were hopeful that the tube would have been removed this past Monday, but the lung would not remain inflated. Brandon is in good spirits, especially after speaking with his friend, Christopher Nixon. Brandon would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Howard University Hospital for their care and appreciates the outpouring of love and support from his fans, teammates and the Redskins family.”

What are you talking about? He was one of the few bright spots last year for the Skins. There is no drama, he was at a club and someone tried to attack his friend, he wasnt even the primary target.  Everytime something bad happens to a black athlete, it doesnt mean they did something to warrant what happened to them.

The Redskins should do the same thing as the guy at the night club. Cut him. We don't need the drama.

I would perform a talc pleuropedisis before I did a thoracoscopy procedure. Either way he will be fine by the time 2012 rolls around.
