Broncos send home Ryan Murphy after he was questioned in prostitution sting
Denver Broncos practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was sent home to Denver after being questioned, but not cited in a prostitution sting Tuesday. Murphy's brother and a prostitute were given citations in the sting in a motel parking lot. "Although practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was not cited by police, we decided it was best for the team if we continued our preparations for Super Bowl 50 without him," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. "Ryan is returning to Denver but his status as a practice squad player has not changed at this time. Murphy grew up in Oakland and played at Oregon State. He was signed by the Broncos in November. “To get to this point in your football career, as a player and as a team, it’s hard to get there," Kubiak said. "You just want to know that everybody is doing everything they possibly can for next Sunday. That’s accountability by players and everybody, but they know that. I talk to them about that all the time. We’re going into a real — it’s a week of heavy distractions, but you work to be in those distractions.” Follow me on Twitter; @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
