About 40 days after the end of the 2010 season, Redskins WR Brandon Banks was involved in a nightclub incident that ended with somebody allegedy stabbing him and sending him to the hospital for multiple emergency surgeries.

BanksMaking matters scarier was the fact that the knife nicked one of his lungs, and a chest tube had to be inserted to keep it inflated.

Fast forward three months later, and Banks is working out with his teammates and trying to overcome this latest impediment.

“Just more obstacles,” he told the Washington Post. “That’s it.”

But his father told the paper he thinks the incident has made Banks – who has worked out five times the past two months with his teammates – practice with even more desire.

“I look at him, and he looks more hungry,” Daryle McNair said. “Like he wants to work harder, like there’s more desire.”

I thought they were inferring that he loved hospital food.  Good luck with the recovery.

Lets not forget the incident that put him in the hospital. The Skins don't need a character problem on the team. I say give him this one chance to redeem himself but if another such situation arises........ cut him.

You gotta' love the attitude! Get knocked down, get back up ... and make yourself ever stronger.
