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.

Brandon has beaten a few women in his day.  It appears that this
wife fought back after another beating he was inflicting.  You play
with fire, you get burned!.

Told you so Dolphin fans.  You though one year ago that my "warning" to you about Marshall was a bitter rant about losing him on the Broncos.  I told you he was not a good human being.  I told you he will bring violence one way or another to either your city or team.  He is truly a stupid human being who lacks the intelligence to function without a chapperone.  He surrounds himself with people who are similar.  The result SO FAR is him being stabbed.  You folks 1200 miles away mocked me for giving you the info that the bullets were meant for him that night in the limo not Darrent Williams.  I have nothing against you Dolphin fans, just telling you the truth.  Drive him out of your city because the violence is not over yet.

Nothing goes with the annual draft like the annual off-season stabbings. Only in the NFL. There should be off-season fantasy league Draft on character issued player's who have a knack for getting into trouble. Could definatly put together some troublesome teams for sure. The crazy wives could be the Flex position.

No Mo

Brandon's a party aninmal---he was probably "entertaining" some other ladies and his wife didn't like it.  He needs to watch his back when he's with his chicks.
