BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Cleveland Browns say a member of the team's grounds crew killed himself at their practice facility.

Authorities say the body was found Saturday morning at the Browns facility in Berea

The team says in a statement that it's a terrible tragedy and that their heartfelt condolences go out to the man's family. The team did not identify the staff members in its statement.

The Browns play in Oakland against the Raiders on Sunday.

A spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner says they were called to the practice facility to investigate a suicide Saturday morning, but would not release any further details.

The body was found on the same day when Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager after earlier killing his girlfriend.
