ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The agent for Denver Broncos defensive end Jason Hunter is thanking fans for their prayers and insisting he suffered only a minor injury after being stabbed in Detroit.
Agent Robert B. Walker tweeted Wednesday, "I've spoken to my client Jason Hunter and it's a very minor injury, just a few stitches. He'll be fine. We thank you for your prayers."
Walker did not return messages from The Associated Press seeking more details.
Detroit Officer Dan Donakowski confirmed the 27-year-old Hunter was stabbed, 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.
WXYZ-TV in Detroit reported Hunter was knifed Wednesday in his left shoulder.
The Broncos released a statement saying the team was looking into the matter and hopes Hunter "makes a quick recovery," but that out of respect for his privacy, it wouldn't comment further.
