Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall is in a south Florida hospital, recovering from stab wounds he received at the hands of his wife.

According to the Broward County Sheriff's arrest report, Michi Nogami-Marshall confessed to stabbing her husband with a kitchen knife, but claimed it was in self-defense.

The controversial and notoriously hot-tempered Marshall seems to have initially tried to shield his wife from blame. He told cops who responded to the scene at the couple's home, that he'd fallen on a broken vase and that's what cut him. There was a shattered vase at the scene, but it was not bloodied.

He is in the Intensive Care Unit at Broward General Hospital, although his injuries were determined to not be life-threatening.
