Ryan Murphy's stay at Super Bowl 50 was a short one.
The Denver Broncos' practice squad safety was sent back to Denver by the team after he was questioned by police Tuesday as part of a prostitution bust in San Jose.
According to a CBS Bay Area report, Murphy was not arrested. However his brother was cited as part of a multi-agency effort to crack down on prostitution.
“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 in a team statement. “Ryan is returning to Denver but his status as a practice squad player has not changed at this time.”
The former seventh round pick of the Seattle Seahawks' will have to pay his own way back to San Francisco should he return this week.
