The Saints players love practicing in the cool mountains of West Virginia, but their boss is having some problems with it.
According to Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saints owner Tom Benson had to be taken off the field in an ambulance this morning.
The 87-year-old Benson was taken to a local hospital to receive oxygen, and a team spokesman said it was a result of elevation.
The Greenbrier Resort’s website refers to the 2,000-foot elevation, which is quite different than the sea level-or-below the Saints are used to at home.
It’s been a rough few months for Benson, who took a spill at the May owners meetings, but was reportedly fine afterward.
