We don't have a lot of details at the moment, but reports are now circulating that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall is in a Fort Lauderdale hospital in intensive care after being stabbed by a woman who may or may not be his girlfriend.
According to Twitter, now several reporters are confirming this story. Also a tweet from Chadochocinco that says "All of you keep my dude bmarshall19 in your prayers as he recovers in intensive care this morning".
We'll monitor this story today and update it when we can.
Just after 9am- Jay Glazer from Fox Sports reports that Dolphins officials tell him, Marshall is not in "Imminent Danger at this point".
Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports that he spoke to Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire and was told, "This is a very difficult time for Brandon and his family, thankfully he's going to make a full recovery, we just ask that his privacy be respected."
Pro Football Talk has a story about Marshall's wife apparently being arrested for stabbing him.
The story RIGHT HERE
1330 UPDATE: Marshall's wife admitted to police at the hospital that she stabbed Brandon in "self-defense." According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Marshall originally said that he slipped and fell on a vase, according to the police report, but officers didn't find any blood in the area surrounding the vase in question. It is not known if authorities are considering charging Marshall with lying to the police.
"Both the victim and the defended provided scant information regarding the incident itself," wrote Detective J. Lawrence in the same report.
The Marshalls went through something like this once before in Atlanta back in 2009. Brandon Marshall was arrested after allegedly being involved in a fight with his then-fiancee. Neither wanted to testify against the other, and the initial charges of disturbing the peace were dropped.
Here's the police report, thanks to the Sun-Sentinel...
