Report: Denver Broncos Defensive End Jason Hunter Stabbed By Girlfriend


DETROIT — Detroit police say Denver Broncos defensive end Jason Hunter has been stabbed and taken to a local hospital.

Officer Dan Donakowski says Hunter was stabbed Wednesday, but didn't have any additional information, including where the incident took place, who was responsible and Hunter's condition. The hospital wasn't disclosed.

Hunter is a five-year pro who also has played for the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.

The stabbing comes only days after police in Florida said Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall, a former Bronco, was stabbed with a kitchen knife by his wife.

Update (2:26 pm): is reporting that Hunter's 23-year-old girlfriend stabbed him in the left shoulder Wednesday morning.

Hunter's girlfriend, who's name was not released, was taken into custody. However, according to the report, no charges will be filed because Hunter doesn't want to pursue the case.

The Denver Broncos have released this statement regarding Hunter:

"We are aware of the reports regarding Jason Hunter and are currently in the process of gathering information and reviewing the facts. Our thoughts are with Jason, and we are hopeful he makes a quick recovery.  Out of respect for his privacy, we will not have additional comment on the matter at this time."
