Saints owner Benson leaves training camp
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. - After being hospitalized for difficulty breathing and dehydration twice in the past two weeks, Saints owner Tom Benson has left training camp in West Virginia early.
Team spokesman Greg Bensel says the 87-year-old Benson is doing well and on Wednesday had returned to work at team offices in suburban New Orleans.
On Tuesday, Benson was taken to a hospital in Lewisburg and was released after being given oxygen and a series of tests. Bensel says Benson had a good night at The Greenbrier resort and "woke up feeling great."
Benson also was hospitalized with similar symptoms on July 29th.
Bensel says Benson apparently struggled with the altitude in the Allegheny Mountains. The Saints' practice fields are at an elevation of about 2,000 feet, whereas New Orleans is at sea level.
