Junior Seau's family sues NFL over brain injuries

The family of former NFL linebacker Junior Seau sued the NFL today over Seau's brain injuries. The family claims that his suicide was the result of brain injuries he suffered while playing football.

The lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday morning in San Diego, blames the NFL for it's "acts or omissions" that hid the dangers of many blows to the head. They say that Seau's injuries were ignored and that the NFL didn't want people to know.

I'm not going to judge them for losing their loved one, but I do wish them the best. Seau's death was likely because of injuries to the head, and I can't wait to watch how the league gets out of this one.
