Brandon Marshall's Wife Injured While Couple Leaves Club, According To Agent

Just hours after being acquired from the Miami Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported that Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was apparently involved in an altercation recently in New York City that could ultimately be reviewed by the NFL.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer has a statement from Marshall's attorney about the situation, which doesn't appear to be as bad as it could've been:

On March 12, 2012, Brandon Marshall was the key note speaker at a charitable event in New York. After the event was over he, his wife and close friends attended a function at a local club. While at the function a fight broke out NOT involving Mr. Marshall or his friends. While attempting to leave to avoid the melee Mrs. Marshall was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury. While attempting to leave and take his wife to the hospital, the mayhem continued outside. Finally Mr. Marshall was able to take his wife to the hospital where she was treated for serious injuries. Mr. Marshall is hoping to assist authorities in regards to this matter.

From gleaning the statement, it appears that Marshall was primarily trying to avoid having any involvement in the altercation. At this point, it's unclear whether the Bears or the NFL will pursue any sort of investigation into the incident, but it doesn't appear that Marshall has done anything particularly wrong.

Hopefully his wife will be able to recover quickly from whatever injuries she sustained and this won't have any sort of impact on Marshall's long-term standing with his new team.
