DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Brandon Marshall is revealing his latest opponent: Borderline personality disorder.
The Miami Dolphins' wide receiver says he was diagnosed earlier this year with the disorder, which has been known to stem from things such as unstable personal relationships, a negative self-image and a fear of failure.
Marshall talked about the disorder in a nearly 20-minute statement after the Dolphins wrapped up practice Sunday. He first announced the issue in Sunday's South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
He had a tumultuous offseason and was stabbed in the abdomen on April 22 during what sheriff's officials say was a domestic dispute. Marshall's wife was charged with aggravated battery, though that charge was dropped late last week and Marshall insisted again Sunday that his wife "did not take a knife and stab me."
