ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported early Saturday morning that Marshall was intensive care after being stabbed in the stomach by his wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall. The initial reports are that he will be okay, although the wound required surgery.

Nogami-Marsahll was arrested on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. She has admitted to stabbing her husband in the abdomen with a kitchen knife, but says her actions were in self-defense.

At first, Marshall apparently told police that he had slipped and fell on a vase. But the officers took Michi into custody due to the nature of Marshall’s injuries. (Obviously the police didn’t believe that he fell on a vase.)

Marshall is expected to be released from the hospital today and will make a full recovery. He and his wife are not strangers to domestic violence, as he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in Atlanta after allegedly getting into a fight with Michi (who was his fiancé at the time). But charges were dropped the next day.

According to online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com, the Dolphins are currently 50/1 to win the 2011 Super Bowl.
