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 police didn’t have any additional information, including where the incident took place, who was responsible and Hunter’s condition. The hospital wasn’t disclosed.
The Broncos released a statement saying the team hopes Hunter “makes a quick recovery,” but that out of respect for his privacy, it wouldn’t comment further.
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.
