Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome was taken to a Chicago hospital after he felt lightheaded as a precautionary measure, according to two reports.

WNST's Nestor Aparicio and Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs both confirmed the news through different sources.

The Ravens lost to the Chicago Bears, 23-20 in overtime, after a nearly two-hour weather delay in the first quarter. Newsome, 57, has been with the Ravens organization every day of its existence after the franchise moved from Cleveland, where he played, coached and worked in the Browns' front office.
