UPDATE 3:30 p.m. EST: Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Marshall is out of the hospital but has defensive wounds on his hands. Those wounds are not believed to be serious, but they could certainly impact Michi Marshall's claim that she stabbed her husband in self defense.


Brandon Marshall is expected to be discharged from a South Florida hospital Saturday after spending several hours in intensive care following a stabbing from his wife during a domestic dispute. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Marshall underwent surgery late Friday night for a stomach wound and is expected to make a full recovery in 2-3 weeks.

Meanwhile, Michi Nagomi-Marshall, who married the Dolphins receiver in 2010, remains in Broward County Jail on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Her bail is set at $7,500.

There is thick cloudiness regarding exactly what happened Friday night. Andrew Carter of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Michi has admitted to stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife, but she says she was acting in self defense.

There are reports that Marshall is claiming he slipped and fell on a vase. (Doctors have determined that Marshall was stabbed.) ESPN reports that Marshall was driven to the hospital in a car after whoever called 911 declined a dispatcher's offer to provide of an ambulance. 
Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire, issued a statement to's Jason La Canfora: "This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family, thankfully he will make a full recovery. We simply ask that his privacy is respected."

As the Denver police came to find out during Marshall’s career as a Bronco, domestic disturbance is not uncommon in the Marshall household. There were countless issues from '06 - '09; in '08 Marshall served a one-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Marshall was involved with a domestic issue with Michi in Atlanta two years ago, but all charges were dropped when the couple refused to testify against one another. It's worth noting that the 27-year-old wideout has not been in trouble since signing a four-year, $47.5 million contract with Miami last season.

Despite the lockout's rules prohibiting contact between players and teams, the Dolphins are allowed to be in touch with Marshall to send well wishes (we learned there can be exceptions to the “no contact” rule a few weeks ago when Bengals’ defensive end Antwan Odom’s house burnt down).

Albert Breer of NFL Network was told by the league that Dolphins team doctors are also allowed to see Marshall and consult with his doctors.

bdaddy, I think the point about money and good human beings is a good point.  However, what I think the person is trying to get at is that a lot of these guys attribute their hard life to just not having the money to do things.  While I don't disagree for a second that just because you have money, doesn't make you a respectable person...I do think that they should probably learn a little bit from the new lifestyle that they have.  In my opinion, if I were given the kind of cash they are given I wouldn't do a thing to jeopardize losing that.  On the other hand, I'm educated and I think that is the biggest difference.  You give money to a person that is educated, they do the right things with it, yet still enjoy having it.  You give money to a person that has nothing upstairs going get guys like Brandon Marshall

when are these millionares going to start acting like decent human beings. Just plain stupid to have the worls in your hands and live like morons.

When does becoming  a millionare make anyone a decent human.  Just look at many of our fine politicians for some prime examples of "morons" using their cash to hide their behaivor.  It takes a couple generations of being rich to know how to hide everything.  They call that wisdom "old money".

Speaking of "old money" I haven't seen Paris's drunken, moronic self showing off her bald hoochie to the public with her hme confinment braclet dangling around her ankle.  Maybe Dad decide to use it as a VIP promotion at the Hilton "5 nights a a Hilton and you get to see my slutty little daughter's hoochie up close and personal". 

Yes morons are every where, it is just the gehto ones just seem to be more violent.  That is just because they don't understand how rich they are and if they kill each other nobody gets to spend it but the government.  Maybe Jed Bush should go show them how to behaive like morons and keep up the right image, it works with his daughters, lol.

Damn, it sucks being an NFL players or NBA players, even your wife or girlfriend can be consider arm and dangerous. speaking about sleeping with the enemy. God knows what Marshall did to his wife to piss her bad enough for her to stab him. It better be something worth going to jail for. I can only think of 2 things, either she caught him in bed with another girl or her best friend or he caught her in bed with another man or his best friend. Guess in this era, you're not safe even in your own house anymore.
