Amid all the pandemonium of the nearly two-hour inclement weather delay in Chicago and the Bears subsequent overtime victory on Sunday, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome left Soldier Field by ambulance shortly after the game after not feeling well.

Though Newsome didn't travel home with his team, the Ravens announced Monday that the 57-year-old Newsome was on his way to Baltimore and that he was "feeling fine."

Newsome told the Baltimore Sun that his tests came back normal and that he would return to the office Monday to watch game film.

On Sunday, a WSNT reporter tweeted that he was in an elevator with Newsome and that the GM was "sweating profusely." Later on Sunday, the Ravens said, "Ozzie Newsome did not feel well after today's game and a team doctor recommended that Ozzie not fly tonight.”
