Lions' wide receiver Scotty Anderson was stabbed during a brawl outside of a Houston night club Monday evening, along with brother Steven.
According to a Houston Police Department Police report, an argument ensued between Scotty and his cousin, Carlos Hicks, as the three walked towards their vehicle after leaving the night club.
The two suspects, Christopher Lemar Robinson, 30, and Charles Edward Jones, 30, believed comments made between Scotty and Carlos were directed towards them. After the two groups exchanged words, witnesses stated that the two suspects pulled knives.
Scotty Anderson, who will be entering his third season with the Lions, received stab wounds to the upper arm but was treated and released. Steven Anderson, however, was subject to multiple stab wounds and remains in critical condition at Hermann Memorial Hospital.
Carlos Hicks was not injured.
Robinson and Jones, who face charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, were identified and arrested by Houston police officers.
The Detroit Lions released this statement following the events: "The Detroit Lions thoughts and prayers are with Scotty Anderson and his family during this difficult time, and the Lions family is hoping for Stevie's full and complete recovery."
