The family of Junior Seau may be rethinking their decision to donate his brain for research into football-related injuries.

San Diego chargers chaplain Shawn Mitchell says Seau's family members are consulting with a group of elders on the matter.

In the meantime, there was a moving tribute Sunday for Seau. Hundreds of surfers took part in a paddle-out in front of his home in Oceanside. Seau loved to surf.

Sadly, one woman was taken to the hospital in serious condition after being found face down in the water during the tribute.
