Reason No. 8,965 For The NFL Lockout To End: Too Many Players Are Getting Stabbed

No, I’m not joking about this, either. Less than a week after Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was stabbed by his ex-wife, Denver Broncos defensive end Jason Hunter is in a Detroit hospital recovering after he was allegedly stabbed in the left shoulder by his girlfriend Wednesday morning. Hunter’s overall condition is unknown at this time.

From (via Mile High Report):

Sources tell Action News that Hunter, who was driven to Detroit Receiving Hospital by someone he knows, said it was his 23-year-old girlfriend who stabbed him this morning.

Detroit police did take Hunter’s girlfriend into custody and told Action News that she was facing charges including felonious assault. Investigators later said the woman would not be arraigned on the charges because Hunter does not want to pursue the matter.

Jeez Louise. What is going on with these players and their spouses and/or girlfriends? it is definitely turning into something of a stabby epidemic. If you ask me, we have to get these players into minicamps or organized team activities or something before one of these women really snaps and ends up profiled on that show on the Oxygen Network. I’m serious.
