An unusual day at Soldier Field has reportedly ended with another interesting twist. According to reports, Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome was taken from the stadium in an ambulance after the team’s loss to the Chicago Bears in overtime.

There have been no official comments from either team, but a few witnesses are passing along what they reportedly saw.

From Sports Illustrated:

Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome left Soldier Field via ambulance after his team’s loss to the Bears, according to WNST’s Nestor Aparicio.

Aparicio, a radio personality in Baltimore, tweeted that he rode in an elevator with Newsome and Newsome was “sweating profusely.” Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported that “Ravens officials were adamant they wanted person going on ambulance taken out side door of locker room so no one would see.”

Newsome, 57, has been with the Ravens since 2002.

We will pass along more information as it becomes available and we will send our positive thoughts and well wishes in Newsome’s direction.
