Colts' Harper Is Hurt; Wife Arrested

From the Associated Press

Indianapolis Colt cornerback Nick Harper's wife was jailed Saturday night, accused of cutting him with a knife, a sheriff said.

Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Carter said Daniell Harper, 31, was being held without bond on suspicion of battery with a deadly weapon and criminal recklessness.

Nick Harper was treated for a knee injury at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. His injuries were not considered life-threatening, Carter said.

Harper was listed as questionable for today's AFC divisional playoff game against Pittsburgh.

Earlier Saturday, Colt spokesman Craig Kelley said Harper had required stitches in his knee following an "accident." He said he had no other details.

Kelley told the Associated Press later that he had gotten his information from Colt officials.

"There was not an accident," Carter said. He said Harper and his wife had been involved in a fight.
