Family and medical officials are keeping an eye on Tom Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans, after he fell ill Sunday while attending the Saints game.

Benson was taken to the hospital for what were described as precautionary reasons. He reportedly felt weak after attending a number of events over the weekend.

An update Monday from a team spokesperson said that Benson was doing "very well" after spending the night at the hospital and that Benson would be home on Tuesday and back to work later this week.

“Gayle and I could not be more proud of our Saints and Pelicans players and hope you join us as we cheer on the Pelicans tonight," Benson said in a statement. "We look forward to seeing everyone back in the Superdome this Sunday.”
