CLEVELAND (AP) — The NFL has no plans to ask Browns owner Jimmy Haslam to step aside while the FBI investigates his involvement in a fraud scheme.

League spokesman Greg Aiello said Friday in an email that the league is not concerned about the daily operations of the Browns and that "there are no such plans" to have Haslam remove himself temporarily from the team.

According to an affidavit filed in Knoxville, Tenn., Haslam was aware that members of his Pilot Flying J travel center company's sales force preyed on smaller trucking companies by reducing the amount of rebates they were owed for buying certain amounts of fuel.

Haslam, who bought the Browns in October from Randy Lerner, has returned to Tennessee after he was at the team's headquarters Thursday to help with preparations for next week's draft.
