MIAMI, April 23 (UPI) -- Sheriff's deputies arrested Brandon Marshall's wife Friday night after she allegedly stabbed the Miami Dolphins receiver at their Florida home.

Marshall was admitted to the intensive care unit of Broward General, but his agent, Kenny McGuire, said in a statement he was expected to make a full recovery.

"This is a very difficult time for Brandon and his family, thankfully he will make a full recovery. We simply ask during this time we respect his privacy," said McGuire.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel said Saturday that Broward County deputies responded to a call at the Marshalls' home in Southwest Ranches and found the 26-year-old receiver bleeding.

According to the arrest report, Marshall told the deputies he had cut himself on a broken glass vase; however his wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, said she had stabbed him with a kitchen knife in self-defense. Mrs. Marshall was booked on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and held on $7,500 bond.

The Dolphins told the Sun Sentinel they had no details on the incident. The newspaper said Marshall has had run-ins with the law in the past due to domestic violence incidents.
