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.

New Miami QB?

The good news is she was able to hit him in the hands and put it near the numbers on his jersey.  That alone should get Jeff Ireland to give her a shot in camp to win the starting job for the 'fins this year. The only question is whether or not her arm can hit the deep routes.  p.s. - Did anybody get an indication of Brandon's YAC average during this event?  Obviously the Mrs. never hung out with Ray Lewis' posse... or DID she?

 I'm not trying to be insensitive, but if you heard that Peyton Manning had been stabbed, your reaction would have been that's terrible! I saw that Marshall got stabbed, and my first thought  was what did he do!  I don't know why, but it always happens to the ones you expect it to.  Go figure?

Oh but dont you know? It's never the womens fault! If they do something, its in self defense so they can justify their actions (sarcasm)
Bitch needs a life sentence of just staying in the kitchen making him sandwiches whenever he wants one.

If you think the typical African-American household is like The Jeffersons think again. The only difference here was that there are no 3 year olds screaming and crying as witnesses to this fine and upstanding household. I am willing to bet it all started when Brandon copped her 8 ball and shared it with another banger. Then Michi finds out and gets her shank at the ready. The law of the jungle takes over and now everybody is lying, and cheating and looting and tooting and robbing and stabbing. The harder they come the harder they fall one and all.
