Denver Broncos practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was detained and questioned by authorities Tuesday in San Jose, California, during a prostitution sting involving his brother, according to the San Jose Mercury News' Robert Salonga

Citing sources, Salonga reported Murphy's brother was cited for solicitation. Murphy was not arrested or cited. 

The Broncos, however, aren't taking any chances. Shortly after news broke regarding Murphy's run-in with law enforcement, head coach Gary Kubiak announced the safety was being sent home, according to vice president of public relations Patrick Smyth:

USA Today's Lindsay Jones provided some background on the involvement of practice squad players during Super Bowl week: 

A 2015 seventh-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks out of Oregon State, Murphy has yet to play a down in a regular-season game or record a statistic, per Pro-Football-Reference.com

The free safety—who is also listed as the cousin of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and journeyman quarterback Josh Johnson, according to Pro Football Reference—was among Seattle's final roster cuts in September before he latched on with the Broncos.
