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.

The problem is he can't diffuse a volatile situation.  You pick a wife that not only thinks about stabbing you, but you can't an the argument short of her doing it.

It's time for the Dolphins to get rid of Brandon Marshall. Trade him to an idiot franchise like the Cowboys or whatever, but this guy is poison.

She was arrested, and not him. So as of now, he has not done anything wrong. If his wife stabs him, of course she is going to say self-defense. What else is she going to say?

Moron.  Go read the details of the Stallworth case before you act like you know them.

Do you want the details?  Maybe you want some links to some details and some facts?  Which facts do you want???The FACT that Stallworth's blood alcohol reading was the equivalent of a man his size drinking a 12 pack of 5 percent beer in 6 hours?  The FACT that since he took a nap he drank a whole lot more then the equivalent of a 12 pack?  The FACT he got into his car, put the keys in the ignition and drove drunk?   The FACT he drives a Bentley, is a multi millionaire and refuses to pay a driver a few bucks a year to take him places after he drinks?  The FACT that instead of honking the horn at the guy he killed before running him over he flashed his lights at him and NEVER HONKED THE HORN at all ( in the police report by the way)......   is that enough for you or do you want more?  The FACT he paid off the family so he would have their support in court and not face a longer jail sentence?
I know you Stallworth lovers are hanging onto the only thing you can hold onto.... the guy he killed was jay-walking.....  I guess anybody that jay-walks deserves to die????   Gotcha !!!!!    Less than 30 days in jail for what Stallworth did is a joke... and the fact he collected a 4 million dollar roster bonus a week before that, got suspended for the year and didn't have to pay back one penny of that money to his team is one of the reasons I sometimes hope and pray for a lockout...
