OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Less than 24 hours after leaving Soldier Field in an ambulance, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome was back to work at the team’s Owings Mills facility on Monday afternoon.
Following the Ravens’ 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears, Newsome became ill and was taken to a hospital for tests and observation after initially being checked out in the Baltimore locker room. WNST.net’s Nestor Aparicio reported that Newsome had even fainted after being seen sweating profusely on the way down from the press box following the loss.
However, the Ravens released an official statement Monday morning that Newsome was on his way back to Baltimore and was “feeling fine” after Sunday’s health scare.
“It’s good to see Ozzie’s here,” Harbaugh said at the start of his Monday press conference. “He’s been here all afternoon working, so he’s back and has a clean bill of health. I don’t think they know exactly what caused the situation yesterday, but it wasn’t anything serious. He’s doing fine.”
Harbaugh was not made aware of Newsome’s condition until after addressing the media in the post-game interview room but saw the general manager was not in any grave condition before the rest of the team took its chartered flight home on Sunday evening.
An initial examination ruled out any severe health problems, but the team’s medical personnel recommended that Newsome not fly home without being checked out more extensively.
“They had done all the tests, so they didn’t think it was anything serious,” Harbaugh said. “But they had to keep him overnight for observation just to make sure. I know they ran tests pretty much all night, Ozzie said, but it looked like he was OK at that point.”

If you witnessed the Denver Broncos play a game without a quarterback then you know on Tuesday night the Ravens will play without 20 real NFL players in Pittsburgh. That doesn't make it any less disgraceful for the integrity of the league.
