New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson was taken to a hospital Tuesday after needing oxygen while attending Saints training camp in West Virginia, according to the team's spokesman

The team reports that the 87-year-old is now doing better:

A week ago, Benson was treated for dehydration, also after attending camp. He was released after being given fluids.

In May, he was hospitalized after losing his balance and falling off the podium at a New Orleans Super Bowl bid presentation.
