Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman showed up for work on Sunday, despite having pneumonia. His condition was so bad that he was admitted to a hospital on Monday — and he remained hospitalized for two days.
At a time when new mothers are sent packing barely 24 hours after popping out a papoose and my 74-year-old father-in-law was back at his house barely three days after having a hip replaced, the fact that a pro athlete spent two days in a hospital for anything means that the pro athlete must have been very sick.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Grossman was released from the hospital at roughly noon today. Shanahan said that Grossman is expected to visit the facility on Wednesday night. The Redskins play the Bills in Toronto on Sunday.
