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 NFL.com'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.

Shocking that something like this could happen to such an innocent, stand up guy. Yeah, I'm sure he did nothing to provoke his wife. Karma is a bitch, man. Seriously anyone who feels sympathy for this wife beater needs to get an education about domestic violence. Trouble follows this guy around like the plague and he will never change. In end it usually ends badly for guys like this. I'll say this, if this incident doesn't open his eyes and instill some change in his life, nothing will. Dolphins have to be thrilled in their investment......

Brandon, the world is pulling for you, because you are such an honorable guy.  Don't you worry.  In a few weeks, you'll be fine and back to beating and cheating on your wife.  That is, unless the grim reaper sees the light in the interim and decides to intervene.

"HA! A Jets fan chastising someone else for "doing some talking." Absolutely PRICELESS!"

What does being a Jets fan have to do with Brandon Marshall's history of doing a lot of trash talking on the field and getting into trouble off of it? It was only a matter of time before someone decides to do something about it instead of talk back. Funny how someone gets stabbed and all you can think about is who is a fan of who.

Really how could anyone belive trading away Marshall and Cutler was a good idea.  Apparently because they are the 1st two NFLers to have ego's.  You truley belive seperating these two All Stars was a good idea lets talk again in 10 years when the Bronco's still won't have a passing game half as good as those two were.

Brandon should request the #80 (in honour of Irving Fryar) another Miami receiver spotted knifing through opposing defences after his wife got a hold of him. Chris Berman will have a field day with this.
