The fallout from the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal at Penn State has had heavy repercussion throughout the school that may even ensnare the career of legendy coach Joe Paterno.

But it also is taking its toll elsewhere, as Cleveland Browns director of player personnel Jon Sandusky, son of the accused, is taking a leave of absence from the team, according to the Cleveland Leader.

Jon Sandusky is in his second season with the Browns and previously spent nine years with the Philadelphia Eagles organization as well.

Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, is accussed of sexually molesting eight boys over a 15-year period, and the scandal has rocked the storied Nittany Lion program to its foundation.
