As many people know by now, Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall was stabbed with a knife on Friday night and taken to an area hospital. There aren't many details available right but but Marshall's wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, has been arrested, according to reports.
The good news is that the stabbing isn't expected to be a long-term injury. Via ESPN:
No vital organs were pierced in the incident, and doctors have told him that Marshall will be OK in two to three weeks, sources said.
From a football standpoint, this won't be affecting him. He's one of the best young receivers in the game so I'm thrilled there won't be any long-term damage.
It does, though, make me think about the Darrent Williams shooting on New Years a few years ago. A couple weeks ago SI.com had a very in-depth look at that night and the story noted that Marshall was very "shaken" by the incident and still is to this day. I'm not sure what kind of connection you can draw between this event and that night, but it's probably not helping Marshall's state of mind.
