Broncos send home player after prostitution sting

SHARE Broncos send home player after prostitution sting

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Broncos practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was sent back to Denver late Tuesday after he was involved — but not arrested — in a prostitution sting.

Reports said Santa Clara County agencies detained a suspected prostitute, who said she had to go to her car. Murphy was in the car with his brother; Murphy’s brother and the suspected prostitute were cited, but he was not.

Murphy is from nearby Oakland.

“Although practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was not cited by police, we decided it was best for the team if we continued preparations for Super Bowl 50,” coach Gary Kubiak said in a release. “Ryan is returning to Denver, but his status as a practice squad player has not changed at this time.”
