B. Marshall (US Presswire)
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.

This guy just can't stay out of trouble.  He is a disease wherever he goes.  I am damn glad Denver got rid of this jerk.  Miami needs to do the same.  He will keep up this crap until he ends up dead.  He should just go away.

I watch all the Denver stuff as I used to live in Denver and still read the local papers everyday.  This guy was primarily responsible for getting one of his teammates shot in Denver.  It is always one thing or another.  She's claiming self defense.  Neither will testify against the other so the commish will suspend him for 4 games and reduce it 2.  Glad he is not in Denver even though he is a stud receiver.

Born loser.

This guy gets paid to be an NFL athlete and entertainer.. Both are very public. His wife is charged with a violent crime against him... Privacy went down the drain a long time ago... And certainly ended when his wife stabbed him and was charged, Now teh public prosecutor will determine the next step... But this is now a public matter.. What would have happened if she stabbed someone and not her husband... Crimes are prosecuted for a public purpose....

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

After reading this report, I can't help but be reminded of the scene in Narc when Ray Liotta and Jason Patric are grilling some guy after a domestic disturbance when he lit his girlfriends hair on fire because she gave him the clap or something. After she's escorted out of the apartment by the cops while exchanging obscenities with her boyfriend, the guy turns to Liotta and Patric and sullenly declares, "That's a good woman, man."

Poor Brandon.  I have to feel for the guy.  His life hasn't been easy.  Trouble just seems to find him with the problems in Denver with Bradon getting disrespected by the Broncos and their fans.  NOw his fiance accidetly sticks a knife in his abdomen?    Thoughts and prayers to his family.  This guy can't catch a break.

Born to lose..

Marshall seems like one opf those guys who is a born loser.  They guy can`t seem to stay out of harms way.  The sad thing is nobody is suprised that Marshall was stabbed,

The next time we read about Marshal in the off-season will probably be his obituary.

Damn man, B. Marsh has a real chance to be one of the greats in the history of this game. It's too bad has still has not grown up yet and continues to let negative influences be a part of his life. His ablitiy is one of a kind and I'm afraid we'll never see that talent maximized.

Come on Brandon prove me wrong!!!!

I couldn't agree more! I'm glad that some people actually have some sense about domestic disputes.
