Junior Seau’s family to allow brain study

Posted on May 4, 2012 at 7:57 am by Nick Mathews in General (Houston Chronicle)

Deceased NFL star Junior Seau’s family will allow researchers to study his brain for evidence of damage as the result of concussions, San Diego Chargers chaplain Shawn Mitchell told the Los Angeles Times.

“The family was considering this almost from the beginning, but they didn’t want to make any emotional decisions,” Mitchell told The Times on Thursday night. “And when they came to a joint decision that absolutely this was the best thing, it was a natural occurrence for the Seau family to go forward.”

Seau committed suicide on Wednesday.

Researchers at Boston University will be the most likely for the study, but that decision has not been made yet.
