Dolphins’ Marshall out of hospital after stabbing; wife arrested |

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was released from a South Florida hospital Saturday, one day after police say his wife stabbed him in the stomach with a kitchen knife.

A high-ranking Dolphins source said Marshall’s injuries are “not life-threatening.” Another high-end team source said the receiver is “going to be OK” and that it “could have been worse.”

Michi Nagomi-Marshall, who married Brandon Marshall last year, was arrested Friday night on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon because of the incident. The 26-year-old was released Saturday afternoon on $7,500 bond.

According to a source with knowledge of the investigation, Marshall had defensive wounds on both of his hands, in addition to a puncture in his abdomen that required minor surgery. Marshall’s agent, Kennard McGuire, said the receiver is expected to make a full recovery in 2 to 3 weeks.

“This is a very difficult time for Brandon and family,” McGuire and Marshall’s lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, said in a joint statement. “Thankfully, he will make a full recovery. We simply ask that his privacy is respected.”

McGuire and Steinberg were traveling to South Florida on Saturday morning to be with Marshall.

According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, Marshall, 27, provided sworn testimony that he slipped and fell on a broken glass vase at the couple’s home in Southwest Ranches, near the Dolphins’ complex in Davie. But the area where the vase was broken didn’t show any blood to substantiate that claim.

The report stated that after police read Nagomi-Marshall her Miranda rights, she confessed to stabbing Marshall with a kitchen knife and said she did so in self-defense. Police said both Marshall and his wife provided “scant details” on the chronology of events.

The sheriff’s office said the case remains under investigation.
