If Nick Harper had stabbed his wife it would be called "attempted murder", but when his wife stabs him it's just an "accident".

 Colts cornerback Nick Harper's wife told police she accidentally stabbed her husband while waving a filet knife at him during an argument, according to court documents.

Daniell Harper, 31, remained Sunday night in the Hamilton County Jail, where she was being held without bond on preliminary charges of battery with a deadly weapon and criminal recklessness, both felonies.

Sheriff Doug Carter said he was waiting for a judge to determine the conditions for the woman's release. The county prosecutor also must review the case.

Nick Harper, 31, phoned 911 about 3:45 p.m. Saturday and was treated at an Indianapolis hospital after deputies and paramedics found him with a puncture wound to his right knee, police said.

His wife told police the stabbing had been accidental, Sheriff's Department Sgt. Kevin W. Fessel said.

"I don't think this began as a violent confrontation between the two," said Sheriff Carter. "I think this began as a conversation between the two that escalated."

In a written statement Sunday, Colts president Bill Polian said Harper's wound was an inch deep and a half-inch wide. It required three stitches, but Polian said there was no damage to the knee joint or capsule. Harper had been listed as questionable after the injury but started in Sunday's 21-18 playoff loss to Pittsburgh.

Polian said the Colts had no details regarding events surrounding the injury but would investigate and report back to NFL officials.

Harper was arrested in June on a domestic battery charge after police said he hit his wife. He first signed with the Colts as a free agent in 2001.
