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.

She needs to go to jail for stabbing him and he needs to go to jail for not telling the truth about what happened
if you think that Brandon needs to be in jail for not telling the truth about what happened, then every woman who is in the same situation should be put in jail too according to your logic. if the shoe was on the other foot you wouldnt be saying that.


to top it off, this type of action (lieing about an injury from a domestic dispute) happens far too frequently to actually throw those people in jail. the system would become even more flooded with senseless "criminals"

"There must be some other detail that wasn't in the article like maybe she was claiming self-defense or something"

The article did say that.

FWIW men are victims of more serious life-threatening cases of spousal abuse than women are, surpisingly to most people, but it's because abusive husbands usually just use their body, but abusive wives usually use a knife, baseball bat, etc, and inflict a lot more damage.

You're right, she did slit his throat. I remembered it incorrectly because it was so long ago, but I went back and looked it up. Thing is, she was declared schizo and got off scott free four years later.

That's in Florida; no one gets high bail or hard time.  They have the strangest crime of all 50 states.  How do you kill someone with your car because you were still drunk from the night before and only do 30 days in county jail.  Only in Florida.  Maybe Vick should move his permanent state of residence.  He never would've done 18 months in Federal prison if he lived there.

What does this mean: "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."
The guy has a history of trouble, so staying out of it for a year is a good thing, and all of a sudden he's a good guy?
He's lucky he didn't wind up like Blenda Gay, who was a defensive end for the Eagles. Gay's wife claimed he had abused her throughout their three-year marriage, so she waited until he was asleep one night and stabbed him through the heart. You can look it up. It was 1976.

That's the first thing I thought of as well.  There must be some other detail that wasn't in the article like maybe she was claiming self-defense or something. 

Maybe they were practicing their circus/knife throwing routine and it went seriously wrong!!
