Brandon Marshall hospitalized after stabbing

Receiver Brandon Marshall, no stranger to off-field issues and curiously inflicted injuries, reportedly has been hospitalized after a stabbing.

Adam Schefter of ESPN, citing two unnamed sources, reports that Marshall is in intensive care after being stabbed by a woman.

As Schefter points out, details are sketchy.  It’s unclear, for example, when the stabbing occurred.

Since being traded last year to the Dolphins, Marshall has avoided controversy.  During his time with the Broncos, however, Marshall faced a criminal trial on battery charges arising from an incident with a former girlfriend and a DUI charge, two of four total arrests and numerous other domestic complaints.

The league eventually suspended Marshall three games for violating the personal conduct policy.  The suspension was reduced to one game on appeal.

Marshall also was knee-deep in the altercation that resulted in the shooting death of cornerback Darrent Williams.  Marshall’s testimony at the trial of Williams’ assailant left no doubt; Marshall believed he was the real target of the killers.

UPDATE:  Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Marshall is in “no imminent danger.”  He also has more details regarding the incident.

    Stabbed by a woman? Easy. Claim you were beaten, get sympathy, get off clean. The Fred Lane Defense.

    I wish him a speedy recovery, but this doesn’t surprise me at all.

    I wonder if he slipped on a McDonalds wrapper like last time and fell onto the woman’s knife?

    Wow, another sketchball “girlfriend” goes suicidal on “her man”

    woman are crazy….

    Now if you had some structure ( work ) maybe you wouldnt be out getting stabbed by crazy females.

    Intensive Care? That’s bad news.

    Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that his mouth got him in trouble?

  7. Kave Krew says: Apr 23, 2011 9:04 AM

    Hope he’s alright….

    The other 31 teams need him causing havoc in that Dolphin locker room

    It’s not the details that are sketchy, it is Marshall

    -I even had her in the shower…
    -wasn’t me
    -she even caught me on camera…

    Probably a bad breaker-upper.

    Tigers dont change their stripes. I hope the folks drafting players this year have finally realized that.
    Two obvious examples of players who teams keep giving opportunities to are Talib and J. Stevens. These two had a continuous string of “minor” incidents, but the teams kept thinking they would grow up. Some people are bad people.
    I wonder who the bad guys in this draft are;, Jimmy Smith, Ryan Mallet, Cam Newton???? Will any of these guys leave their past in the past or will a team simply waste 10’s of millions of dollars thinking they will?

    I’m positive positive that he was an innocent bystander at a McDonalds just waiting in line and one of those crazy women stabbed him.

    Oy Vey

  15. eagleswin says: Apr 23, 2011 9:14 AM

    I personally thought that his claiming that his forearm laceration happened because he slipped on a mcdonalds bag and fell through a TV was hilarious. I can’t wait to hear the story behind this one.

    To bad this doesn’t reset the arrest meter.

  16. ny82jy says: Apr 23, 2011 9:15 AM

    Once again this scumbag is in trouble. I wonder if the woman who stabbed him was the same girlfriend that he used to beat up on. This guy is always in the news for bad reason. It’s a good thing the dolphins gave this loser that huge contract. He did nothing last year and now he’s laying in a hospital bed after being stabbed. Real nice Miami money well spent.

    Looks like The Dolphins need to draft two WRs.

  18. 4dabears says: Apr 23, 2011 9:16 AM

    This guy is a mess, on and especially off the field.

  19. smartbutlazy says: Apr 23, 2011 9:26 AM

    Too little too late for Darrent Williams.

  20. skoobyfl says: Apr 23, 2011 9:27 AM

    Does Wayne Brady need to …

  21. dieharddolfan6493 says: Apr 23, 2011 9:28 AM

    wow guy -_- i bet he got himself into that. Lets all be classy and wish the idiot a speedy recovery please

  22. FinFan68 says: Apr 23, 2011 9:36 AM

    Bad things don’t continuously happen to smart people. This guy is just stupid.

  23. tombrookshire says: Apr 23, 2011 9:42 AM

    Clearly has issues with women.

  24. prmpft says: Apr 23, 2011 9:46 AM


  25. earlcampbellrules says: Apr 23, 2011 9:53 AM

    Good for her! It’s about time he got stabbed.

  26. scott8nj says: Apr 23, 2011 10:00 AM

    This guy is a moron. He will be one of the 75% of NFL players who are broke within 5 years of leaving the League, if he lives that long.

  27. MichaelEdits says: Apr 23, 2011 10:07 AM

    Ray Lewis wasn’t there

  28. MichaelEdits says: Apr 23, 2011 10:07 AM

    Brandon Marshall is the anti-OJ. The woman stabbed him.

  29. polegojim says: Apr 23, 2011 10:14 AM

    Marshall is a head case in a uniform, with more bad stuff just WAITING to happen.

    He’s a carrier, a causer of negative events.

    Nothing says that athletic talent must be accompanied by common sense, eh?

    Sad thing is…no it’s not the same woman. This is a WHOLE NEW effed up relationship.

  31. gcsuk says: Apr 23, 2011 11:45 AM

    It was probably Aqib Talib, and the woman is just taking the fall for him. He has a way of getting women to do that.

  32. TheWizard says: Apr 23, 2011 11:59 AM

    Remember “McDaniels is an idiot for running Denver’s “stars” out of town…”

  33. thefiesty1 says: Apr 23, 2011 12:33 PM

    It was only a matter of time. It’s when not how or by who. These guys look for a reason to stay in trouble.

  34. bsizemore68 says: Apr 23, 2011 8:38 PM

    There is no cure for stupid. Bill
