When ESPN reported that Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall is in intensive care after being stabbed, plenty of folks were reminded of the late Sean Taylor. His death after being shot by intruders into his home was preceded by a similar report of hospitalization in intensive care with sketchy details.
In Marshall’s case, the news is much better. Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Marshall is in “no imminent danger” after the stabbing, which occurred overnight.
Glazer also reports that the powers-that-be are convinced that Marshall’s wife did the stabbing. Initially, doctors were under the impression that she threw something at Marshall, like a vase or a lamp, that it broke on impact, and that a piece of it impaled him. On closer inspection, doctors concluded that he indeed had been stabbed.
Per Glazer, neither Marshall nor his wife are saying anything about the situation.
It’s not the first time Marshall has received an injury under a cloud of confusion. During his time in Denver, he severed an artery, tendons, and nerves in his arm after crashing through a television. He initially claimed that he had slipped on a McDonald’s bag. Later, he admitted that he had been wrestling with a family member.
