The Ravens confirmed that Newsome did not go back with the team after the game.
“Ozzie Newsome did not feel well after [Sunday]’s game and a team doctor recommended that Ozzie not fly tonight,” the Ravens said in a statement.
Newsome, 57, was sweating profusely after the game when he rode the elevator down to the locker room with reporters. The Chicago Tribune reported security at the stadium stopped employees from using the hallway to load a person from the Ravens onto an ambulance.
Newsome does not have any known medical conditions, according to the Ravens. The Hall of Fame tight end has been Baltimore’s general manager since 2002.
While the Ravens have not offered many details, wide receiver Torrey Smith took to Twitter to support Newsome.
Prayers up for Mr. Newsome
