Report: Ozzie Newsome leaves Soldier Field in ambulance

ozzie-newsomeBaltimore Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome was taken away from Soldier Field in an ambulance following his team’s 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, per a report.

Chicago Tribune reporter Brad Biggs tweeted a photo of an ambulance in Soldier Field and said it was for a Ravens employee:

Biggs later reported that Bears sources confirmed it was Newsome who was taken away in the ambulance. Biggs also says the team wanted the person taken out to the ambulance through a side door so people wouldn’t see what happened.

WNST’s Nestor Aparicio added some more detail about his interaction with the GM:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the Ravens’ website said Newsome did not feel well after the game and that team doctors recommended that he shouldn’t fly home.

Here’s the statement from the team:

“Ozzie Newsome did not feel well after today’s game and a team doctor recommended that Ozzie not fly tonight.”

Newsome, 57, was a Hall of Fame tight end with the Cleveland Browns. He has been the GM of the Ravens since 2002 and helped put together two Super Bowl-winning teams.
