Saints owner Tom Benson hospitalized

New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson was hospitalized to receive oxygen, according to a team spokesman.

Benson's condition was chalked up to altitude and dehydration.

Benson has been dealing with these problems since coming to training camp in West Virginia.

Benson, 87, fell during the spring at the NFL owners meetings and was treated for a concussion. He also had knee surgery.
