Brandon Marshall has defensive wounds on both hands


In addition to being stabbed in the abdominal region during a domestic dispute late Friday night, Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall also suffered injuries to his hands.

Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Marshall had defensive wounds on both his hands.

Obviously, hand injuries could be very serious to a receiver, but all indications are that Marshall will make a complete recovery long before NFL players are back to work.

That Marshall suffered defensive wounds might make things tougher for his wife, Michi, who has been arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Michi Marshall reportedly admitted to the stabbing but claimed self defense.

For their part, the Dolphins aren’t saying much.

“We are aware of the report, and our thoughts are with Brandon at this time,” Dolphins spokeman Harvey Greene said in a statement. “We will look into the matter, but because we are not allowed to have any contact with any of our players, we will refrain from making any further comment.”

The NFL says the Dolphins’ team doctor can see Marshall and consult with his other doctors, and that “The team can send well wishes or other types of appropriate expressions of support.”

    Just two crazy kids in love….Literally..

    The dude has a history of going after women, but the aggressor is not usually the one with defensive wounds and a stab wound. If true, this likely debunks her self-defense statement. Both of them sound crazy and/or stupid.

    Does Wayne Brady need…

  5. hedleykow says: Apr 23, 2011 3:38 PM

    Let this be a lesson to all of us to refrain from getting involved with women who won’t hesitate to stab you repeatedly!

  6. duanethomas says: Apr 23, 2011 3:39 PM

    I was wrong. This isn’t the same woman he had all the other incidents with, that was his old girlfriend. Michi has set the tone for their relationship going foward. Brandon will be of no trouble any more, he married the right/crazy one. Brandon may hit women, but it won’t be Michi. She has displayed a high level of skill with the knife, that would make Bill “The Bucther” Cutting proud. (Gangs of New York)….LoL

    Well, he now finally has a legitimate reason for all those dropped passes.

  8. aldavisisthenfl says: Apr 23, 2011 3:43 PM

    Damn, he finally caught something………..

  9. david7590 says: Apr 23, 2011 3:43 PM

    Well he had a habit of dropping passes to begin with, this won’t help.

  10. phillyrocks says: Apr 23, 2011 3:49 PM

    I guess I need to believe everything I read. Even if it is coming from an agent.

  11. profootballwalk says: Apr 23, 2011 3:54 PM

    If he was attacking her, and she picked up a knife, I’d expect to see ‘defensive’ wounds on his hands.

  12. jcdavey2011 says: Apr 23, 2011 4:04 PM

    defensive wounds probably won’t matter, it was probably self defense , but in the act of defending herself from the aggressor, the aggressor got cut.

    stupid ass brandon probably tried to take the knife out of her hands

    this guy has a history of violence with multiple women, it’s time to admit he’s just a punk

  13. droopyyydog1 says: Apr 23, 2011 4:04 PM

    Guess WR now becomes a need for an offense already struggling with two OLD running backs and in inconsistent QB!
    I had so much hope when The Trifecta arrived but it looks like they are no different than the others. What the hell has happened to this team?

  14. kaakwha says: Apr 23, 2011 4:06 PM

    What a sad joke of a human being is this man!! How many domestic disputes can one guy have?

  15. wawa33 says: Apr 23, 2011 4:11 PM

    Roses are red
    Violets are Dolphin blue.
    Marshall fake falls and slips a 2nd time
    The police report yet again is not true.

  16. cuzz4169 says: Apr 23, 2011 4:15 PM

    Now I’m not so sure he cut himself wrestling his brother.

  17. Kave Krew says: Apr 23, 2011 4:22 PM

    Gosh, what started out as a bit of fun fodder has become a total trainwreck…..

  18. dbellina says: Apr 23, 2011 4:25 PM

    At least now he has an excuse for dropping balls next year.

  19. 706vet says: Apr 23, 2011 4:26 PM

    No surprise here. Just another example…..

  20. kissbillsrings says: Apr 23, 2011 4:28 PM

    WOW….this was a real shocker….I mean who would have ever thought something like this would ever happen to such an accomplished quality individule as Brandon????

    yes, that was complete sarcasim….

    Miami is in for a long nasty commitment here….Josh Mc Danials wasn’t so stupid afterall was he??!!

    You sleep with snakes prepair to be bitten!!!!

  21. canadianvikingfaniii says: Apr 23, 2011 4:28 PM

    Defensive wounds could go either way, if she was truly defending herself with a knife he could have defended himself against the knife, or she could be a crazy sadistic psycho bitch and he again was defending himself from the knife.

  22. kissbillsrings says: Apr 23, 2011 4:37 PM

    Probably from trying to cover his “JUNK”….I’m sure she was trying to pull a Loraina Bobbit on him….guess she had to settle for elsewhere???!!!

  23. melikefootball says: Apr 23, 2011 4:38 PM

    God-del will be putting a lot of overtime in when he has to start to address all these players off the field issues.

  24. hobartbaker says: Apr 23, 2011 4:46 PM

    Deep scratches in the stone of both hands.

  25. prmpft says: Apr 23, 2011 4:46 PM

    ..and so now a built-in excuse for dropping balls…BRILLIANT!

  26. hobartbaker says: Apr 23, 2011 4:47 PM

    Doesn’t sound like she used the butter knife.

  27. aldavisisthenfl says: Apr 23, 2011 4:48 PM

    I ‘ve heard that if someone throws you a knife and you bobble it, it looks like defensive wounds…………..

  28. russin010 says: Apr 23, 2011 5:10 PM

    That’s ok. He didn’t use his hands last year anyways. #mostdropsintheleague

  29. 52crabcakes says: Apr 23, 2011 5:22 PM

    Color me surprised! I am so glad we got Anquan Boldin!

  30. paredskinwarrior says: Apr 23, 2011 5:25 PM

    damn typical diva dumbass move of marrying a crazy bich! Hell his career might be shot now! He needs his hands!

  31. gavinmac says: Apr 23, 2011 5:32 PM

    “The team can send well wishes or other types of appropriate expressions of support.”

    Can they send “regards?”

  32. fatguystrangler says: Apr 23, 2011 5:36 PM

    “You call that a knife? This is a knife!”

    “That’s a spoon..”

    “Oh. Well, I see you’ve played knifey spooney before.”

  33. nagaswan says: Apr 23, 2011 5:36 PM

    He beats her.

  34. kingmikedabear says: Apr 23, 2011 5:37 PM


  35. orangecrush53 says: Apr 23, 2011 5:55 PM

    Maybe the Marshall Family and the Talib Family can have Easter Sunday Dinner together.

  36. j0esixpack says: Apr 23, 2011 6:18 PM

    This isn’t as rare as people think… the long-time abuser has become the abused.

  37. starderup says: Apr 23, 2011 6:52 PM

    He will be recovered long before the next NFL game is played because that will be in 18-30 months.

  38. dd393 says: Apr 23, 2011 7:19 PM

    It “could have been worse.”

    Story of his career.

  39. phinfan says: Apr 23, 2011 7:25 PM

    You dont get stabbed in the gut if you see it coming!!! He probably spent the night with another chick then came home late… Pow

  40. pellucov68 says: Apr 23, 2011 7:35 PM

    dolfans, the silver lining might be …. “and with the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft, the Miami Dolphins select Quarterback Andrew Luck”

  41. brasho says: Apr 23, 2011 7:44 PM

    It was only a matter of time before someone finally got him. First it was the McDonald’s bag that assaulted him, this time it was his wife. Somehow, I think these two incidents were related.

    I know one thing for sure… Marshall better avoiding ever taking his wife to McDonald’s.

  42. thehaljordanproject says: Apr 23, 2011 7:48 PM

    Roger Goodell will probably suspend him just because of the comments you all are making. Even it is ( and probably is) 100% nit his fault. Nice if all you “fans” to jump conclusions the way everyone on this site does. Any heterosexual man has been with a few off the walk females in their life. But of course since this guy play WR in the NFL it is of course his fault. Just imagine if women played in the NFL. You think you hear some crazy off the field stuff now……. I bet the jets bring her in as a consultant on how to slow Marshall down since they can’t themselves

  43. hobartbaker says: Apr 23, 2011 7:49 PM

    After some time to reflect, Brandon has come to the conclusion that that omelettes his wife makes are just as good as the ones that his mother made after all.

  44. bsizemore68 says: Apr 23, 2011 8:01 PM

    There is no cure for stupid. Bill

  45. 3yrsnfl says: Apr 23, 2011 8:05 PM

    My stomach felt upset after reading how Marshall was involved in Darrent Williams death. Cut the POS. He hasn’t learned a thing, ever.

    I had to scroll down three times to finish reading his arrest record. He will not change.

  46. shieldsisland37 says: Apr 23, 2011 8:11 PM

    The man has cut hands from trying to shield himself from a stabbing and all you people can do is make jokes? I hope everyone shows you more compassion if you are ever in the same situation.

  47. xxbomberxx says: Apr 23, 2011 8:19 PM

    So he CAN play a little defense too, cool…… Too soon?

  48. prmpft says: Apr 23, 2011 8:30 PM

    Lighten up OPRAH – you are who you hang out with!!!

  49. msadpoet says: Apr 23, 2011 8:39 PM

    And people talked bad about Denver when they traded him…

  50. claydefayette says: Apr 23, 2011 9:09 PM

    This is why Marshall plays offense

  51. hanktheking says: Apr 23, 2011 9:15 PM

    Somewhere, Josh McDaniels is smiling.

  52. theblowtorchreview says: Apr 23, 2011 10:04 PM

    Don’t you always get defensive wounds when you slip and fall on a broken vase?

    It’s becoming all too clear that this lockout is going to thin the herd before it’s over. These bozos can’t stay out of trouble for one unsupervised month??????

  53. davowilly says: Apr 24, 2011 1:10 AM

    Ya suck!

  54. orangeflh says: Apr 24, 2011 1:28 AM

    The next person on planet earth to utter the phrase “stay classy” should drink bleach.

    Is that “classy” enough for you chuckleheads?

  55. denverdude7 says: Apr 24, 2011 8:17 AM

    Superior talent. Below average intellect. No surprise here. Looks like McDaniels was right about Cutler and now, it appears he was right about Marshall too.

    Cutler can still be a great, great quarterback if he can reign himself in just bit.

    Marshall however, is a lost cause. Defensive wounds or not, he obviously did something to provoke the attack. What that was we will most likely never know the truth.

    What a shame. We all saw just how good Marshall could be.

  56. denverdude7 says: Apr 24, 2011 8:25 AM

    Mr. Marshall,

    Do some research on Chris Carter’s career. You will find a wonderful example of someone getting his act together and saving what could have turned out to be a train wreck of a career.

    You have way too much talent to stay on the road you are on. You are not only depriving us of seeing you improve but most importantly yourself as well.

    Time to get clue dude !!!

  57. freedoginit says: Apr 24, 2011 9:47 AM

    Although I think Domestic Violence is never a good thing, coming from his wife, he probably got what he deserved.

  58. orangecrush53 says: Apr 24, 2011 10:00 AM

    Any truth to the rumor Aqib Talib and Brandon Marshall were spotted today at a Gun & Knife Show?

  59. barklikeadog says: Apr 24, 2011 11:07 AM

    Stay classy, orange!

  60. simplesimon1 says: Apr 24, 2011 1:12 PM

    At least it won’t affect his ability to drop the ball anymore than he already does

  61. subzero05 says: Apr 24, 2011 3:10 PM

    You know although I’m sure Brandon has problems, it always amazes me how when it comes to females no one ever sees them as the aggressor. Why is it not possible that she also has issues and attacked him? I mean a stabbing? Really?

    And to the person who said “a knife closes the gap”, you sir…are an idiot. And it’s not as if she’s gonna say “No, I just stabbed him because I was angry”

  62. finsfanfoever says: Apr 26, 2011 10:45 AM

    Can’t anyone hit this guy between the numbers!!?
