ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Arapahoe County Sheriff says Denver Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley has been found dead in his home.
Sheriff Grayson Robinson says detectives are investigating the death.
Authorities were called to McKinley's home in Centennial on Monday afternoon and found his body.
McKinley was a second-year pro who was on the team's injured reserve list. He played in eight games as a rookie in 2009 with seven kick returns for 158 yards.
The Broncos released a statement from coach Josh McDaniels, who called McKinley's death "a tragic loss."
