NFL Announces Miami Dolphins Wide Receiver Marshall Not Facing Disciplinary Action

The NFL announced yesterday that Miami Dolphins' wide receiver Brandon Marshall faces no disciplinary actions stemming from the April stabbing incident.

In what is maybe a non-story, story, the NFL announced yesterday that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall would not face any disciplinary action resulting from his April stabbing incident.  The NFL's spokeman, Greg Aiello, stated since there were no charge officially filed in the case, Marshall does not fall under the NFL's personal conduct policy, and therefore will not be disciplined.

Last April, Marshall was hospitalized, and underwent surgery, following an incident in his home with his wife.  Marshall's home, according to police reports, had several pools and trails of blood, along with a 13-inch knife and a gun magazine both having blood on them.

Marshall joined Miami last year, after the Broncos agreed to trade away the oft-troubled receiver.  Marshall has had several instances of a poor altitude or questionable judgment.  However, this offseason, with some help from former Dolphins running back Ricky Williams, Marshall was able to seek a doctor, being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.  

Marshall's wife, Michi-Nogami Marshall, was originally arrested and charged with felony battery.  Those charges dropped earlier this month.  Marshall has constantly maintained that he was not stabbed by his wife, instead claiming he fell on a glass vase.

The police reports also reported that Marshall had, "several straight, clean cuts across both wrists."

No matter what happened that April night, and we as fans will never really know, Marshall and his wife are fully cleared of all charges.  With the NFL's announcement yesterday, it appears as though Marshall is now clear of the court of the NFL as well.
