NFL STAR BRANDON Marshall’s wife is accused of stabbing the Miami Dolphins wide receiver and has been arrested on a domestic violence charge, according to a police report.

A report posted on The South Florida Sun Sentinel’s website says that Michi Nogami-Marshall stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife on Friday night, adding that she told police officers she was defending herself.

Marshall, who caught 86 passes for 1,014 yards and scored three touchdowns last season, has been admitted to intensive care unit of Broward General hospital.

The Sun Sentinel contacted a man who identified himself as Brandon Marshall but he hung up when asked how he was feeling.

He had earlier told police that he had slipped and fell on a broken glass vase, but officers could find no blood near the vase, the paper reports.

Nogami-Marshall remained jailed on Saturday on $7,500 bond. It was unclear if she had an attorney.

A statement from Brandon Marshall’s agent, Kennard McGuire, said Marshall will make a full recovery.

A Dolphins spokesman says the team is unable to contact the wide receiver because of the NFL lockout.

Marshall’s longtime friend, free agent Mike Sims-Walker, tweeted on Saturday that “Brandon will be ok and is in good spirits.”
