According to WNST's Nestor Aparicio, a radio broadcaster in Baltimore, Ravens' General Manager Ozzie Newsome was taken from Soldier Field in Chicago in an ambulance. Aparicio tweeted about this incident just a little while ago:

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune said this:

"Ravens officials were adamant they wanted person going on ambulance taken out of side door of locer room so no one would see."
