Banks' agent, James Gould, said Friday that a tube in Banks' left lung has been removed and that the lung is now inflated. He said Banks should be able to resume normal activities in three to four weeks.

Banks and a friend were stabbed outside of a downtown D.C. nightclub during an argument with another man early Saturday. The wound penetrated Banks' lung, requiring a longer hospital stay than initially expected.

A suspect has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.

The 23-year-old Banks had an impressive season with the Redskins last year as an undrafted rookie out of Kansas State.
