Reports: Ozzie Newsome leaves Soldier Field in ambulance


A long day got longer and more worrisome for the Ravens, as General Manager Ozzie Newsome was taken from Solider Field in an ambulance, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

According to Biggs, Ravens officials wanted to make sure the person being put on the ambulance was taken out a side door to avoid attention.

The team hasn’t made any statements in the matter, though Baltimore radio personality Nestor Aparicio reported he rode in an elevator with Newsome who was “sweating profusely.”

Our thoughts are with Newsome for a speedy recovery.

UPDATE 8:42 p.m. ET: The Ravens have issued a statement, saying: “Ozzie Newsome did not feel well after today’s game and a team doctor recommended that Ozzie not fly tonight.”
