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.

You have to remember, most of the black players in the NFL came from the worst parts of the inner cities. The ownerss have to expect when they draft players from this upbringing that many of them are going to be trouble makers. Instead of changing rules to the game that ruin it, My Goodell should start adressing the players with problems and stop allowing teams to make GANGSTERS millionaires.

Does it make me a racist to point out that most of these jokers are black?
And don't feed me that the majority of players are black, the math doesn't equate.

Not at all.  It's a fact that most of the jokers getting into trouble like this are black.   Why would that make you a racist?  Don't listen to people that call you a racist.... they only say that because either they aren't comfortable in their own skin or they love athletes so much they can't stand for anybody to insult them.

Imagine a night at the Marshall household.  One slip-up and you could get stabbed, hit or beat...  Opposites attack!  Man she was going for the slow kill - a knife to the stomach.  Maybe she missed and was aiming lower?  Don't think this couple will see their next anniversary.  Sounds like the kind of guy the Bengals would like to have, maybe his wife could be a Ben Gal Cheerleader.

It's not our attendance at the stadium's that pay the players salaries, it's the network contracts. You want to get the attention of a team and or a sport, voice and boycott the products that advertise on newtwork that carries the team and or sport.

I have always been a proponent of a Fan’s Union. The everyday fan has no voice to their team and or the sport. We lost it when the Cable and TV started paying huge sum’s of money to the league to have the right to carry their games on their network.

 

If the fan’s could organize and act as a cohesive group we could start to influence a sport and the decisions they make … first meeting is scheduled in my basement a week from Tuesday, please take your shoes off at the door my wife is a bit of a neat freak.

I don't read the message boards anymore because of the extreme lack of intelligence of the posters, but i had to on this one so i could see ignorance & stupidity at it's finest...and you did not disappoint.

No one knows what happened in that house. But the retards of the CBSSports community will give their baseless opinions! It's sad knowing their are so many stupid & ignorant people in our beloved country. If i were a terrorist, or any foreigner at that, i would most definitly hate you also.

We all deserve this because we go to the stadiums and enable these jokers to make 12 million a year! What a joke! The majority of these NFL & NBA guys would be doing 7-20 behind bars if it wasn't for sport & we support these kinds of individuals? We should all be ashamed of ourselves! boycottthestadiums

Wow!  This chick must have a temper and Brandon certainly has one.  A perfect marriage made in HELL.  Get a divorce so something worse does not happen please!  Marriage counseling cannot heal stab wounds.
