Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall Stabbed by Wife


Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was in intensive care Saturday morning after his wife stabbed him, according to numerous news sources.


Sources said Marshall was taken to Broward General Hospital by car, not ambulance, and underwent surgery late Friday night for a stab wound to the stomach.

Here's a timeline as ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted Saturday morning:

About 8:47 a.m.:
“Details still coming into ESPN, but Dolphins WR Brandon Marshal was stabbed and taken to a hospital, where he has been in intensive care.”

About 9 a.m.: “Details still sketchy but someone who knows about Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall being stabbed told ESPN, "He's going to be OK."

About 9:20 a.m.: Marshall's best friend and college teammate, Mike Sims-Walker tweeted that Marshall was going to be "ok and is in good spirits."

Around 10 a.m.: "Brandon Marshall was stabbed in stomach. No vital organs were pierced. Should make full recovery in two to three weeks."

Around 10:05 a.m.: "Thankfully he will make a full recovery..."

Around 10:50 a.m.: "At this hour, Brandon Marshall's wife is in jail for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and he is in intensive care with a stab wound."

Fortunately, it looks like Marshall is going to be OK, and even more fortunately we haven't done our 2011 fantasy football draft. We wish him a speedy recovery.
