DENVER (AP) — Police are investigating a burglary at the home of Denver Broncos outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware that occurred while he was at Monday night's football game with the Houston Texans.
Denver police spokesman Doug Schepman said the break-in was reported early Tuesday. A police report said the men came through the front door but does not disclose what items were taken.
A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Ware's Super Bowl 50 ring was stolen. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team isn't discussing details of the burglary and the players were off Tuesday. The ring is valued at more than $30,000.
Ware said on Twitter that he came home to find his house was "robbed." He says is more concerned about his safety than material possessions and is grateful for "hidden cameras."
Police tweeted photos of the suspects , which were shared on social media by fans seeking to help Ware recover his missing property.
Ware, who was instrumental in the Broncos' title run last season, has been out since breaking his right forearm on Sept. 18 in a game against the Indianapolis Colts. He's expected to return to practice this week and play against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday with a cast.
