Corey Ballentine has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound he suffered early Sunday.
Ballentine endured a single bullet wound in the glute and is expected to make a full recovery. Former Washburn University teammate Dwane Simmons, 23, was killed during the incident.
ESPN's Jordan Ranaan reported that Ballentine, who the Giants selected in the sixth round (No. 180 overall), returned home Tuesday morning. It's still possible Ballentine will attend rookie camp, which begins Friday.

Ballentine had to call Simmons' father, Navarro Simmons, with the news his son had been killed.
WFAN host Mike Francesa was met with significant pushback for being critical of Ballentine on Monday, when he rebuked the Kansas native for being involved in the incident hours after being drafted and added "It's just more of the same for the Giants -- they just can't get out of their own way."
