BALTIMORE, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Baltimore General Manager Ozzie Newsome said he felt good as he headed home Monday after being hospitalized in Chicago following the Ravens' loss to the Bears.

Newsome, on a morning flight back to Baltimore, said he expected to be back at work in the afternoon, The Baltimore Sun reported.

After the 5-hour, 16-minute game Sunday, Newsome was taken from Soldier Field to a local hospital by ambulance.
