CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr.
attended a funeral on Tuesday for his younger brother, Justin K.B.
Winslow, who died suddenly last week in Kansas City, Mo. He was 23.

The son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow Sr. was
found unconscious on Oct. 12 by his mother, Dawnn Wimes O'Bannon.
According to a statement released by the family, he was
unresponsive with a weak pulse.

Justin Winslow was taken by ambulance to a hospital but couldn't
be revived and died. A family spokeswoman said the cause of death
would not be known until toxicology tests are completed.

beloved son and brother, Justin K.B. Winslow," the family's
statement said. "Justin will continue to inspire his family and
friends that were touched by his life. His vivacious personality
and magnetic spirit will be deeply missed."
