Panthers released/failed physical OT Michael Oher.
The Panthers' former left tackle, Oher entered the concussion protocol last Week 4 and has remained there since. "The brain is a scary thing," Oher posted on social media following the announcement. "You have to be careful with it." The Panthers spent the offseason preparing for life after Oher, lavishing money on LT Matt Kalil and using a second-round pick on Taylor Moton. Oher, whose career was stalling before he surprisingly emerged as the Panthers' blindside protector, turned 31 in April. His NFL future is looking bleak. Thu, Jul 20, 2017 04:50:00 PM

Panthers OT Michael Oher stood up for fired GM Dave Gettleman on Tuesday.

Posting on social media, Oher said Gettleman "really cares about you as a person." Oher also took a veiled shot at former and current teammates who were in favor of Gettleman's firing. "And for the people downstairs who are happy and had something to do with it downstairs, Karma’s a (blank)!!" Oher's Panthers future remains uncertain as he awaits clearance from his 2016 concussion issues.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton reports OT Michael Oher (concussion) will report for training camp, but his future with the team "remains uncertain."

Oher reported for minicamp, but didn't participate. He's yet to be cleared from his concussion issues. "We're going to go into training camp with the guys that we have," were coach Ron Rivera's cryptic words. "We'll have 90 on our roster, and we'll be ready to go with those guys." With Matt Kalil, Daryl Williams and second-rounder Taylor Moton ready to serve as the Panthers' top three tackles, Oher's healthy return would be considered a bonus.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the front office is "taking care of" the situation with OT Michael Oher (concussion).

Rivera added he is preparing for camp with the 90 guys who will be on the roster, suggesting the Panthers could release Oher in the coming weeks. Oher reported to minicamp this week, but he was not spotted on the field. It is looking increasingly unlikely he is able to contribute for the Panthers this season.
Thu, Jun 15, 2017 12:24:00 PM

Panthers OT Michael Oher (concussion) reported for the start of minicamp.

This is a surprise considering the Panthers had not had contact with Oher since May, while an Instagram post by the tackle made it clear he is still not over the concussion issues which ended his 2016 season. Oher has not been spotted on the practice field, so it is possible he will just meet with team doctors, who have not seen him in "a while," according to the Charlotte Observer. Despite this development, it still seems unlikely Oher is able to contribute this season.
Tue, Jun 13, 2017 08:58:00 AM

The Charlotte Observer believes OT Michael Oher's (concussion) time with the Panthers appears "just about done."

This is speculative, but Oher is trending in the wrong direction going into minicamp. Oher hasn't been in contact with the Panthers in over a month and recently suggested he's not over his concussion symptoms. The Panthers could be forced to turn to rookie Taylor Moton or Daryl Williams if Oher can't get cleared.
Fri, Jun 9, 2017 07:31:00 PM

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said he hasn't been in contact with OT Michael Oher (concussion) since last month.

It falls in line with what coach Ron Rivera said earlier this week. Oher recently posted a photo of prescription medicine bottles on Instragram, suggesting he's still not over his concussion symptoms. Taylor Moton and Daryl Williams will continue to get reps at right tackle if Oher isn't cleared for minicamp.
Fri, Jun 9, 2017 06:50:00 PM

Panthers OT Michael Oher shared a concerning photo of 10 prescription medicine bottles on Instagram Thursday night, with the words "All for the brain smh."

For those not familiar, "smh" stands for "shaking my head." Oher continues to be away from the team as he tries to get healthy. Word last month was that Oher planned to attend this month's minicamp, but that remains to be seen. The concern in the photo was the pure amount of prescription drugs and pain killers NFL players consume to get their bodies "healthy" enough to play. Players have been able to acquire highly addictive pills so freely, and it's one of the reasons many are staunchly advocating for the use of medical marijuana.
Fri, Jun 9, 2017 10:08:00 AM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera is not sure if OT Michael Oher will attend minicamp next week.

"We'll see," Rivera said before adding the team has had some communication with the presumptive right tackle. "We know he's working out right now." Oher's future is murky after losing his 2016 to a concussion and reportedly dealing with "personal matters" this offseason. The Panthers will turn to second-round rookie Taylor Moton or Daryl Williams at right tackle if Oher cannot make it back.
Mon, Jun 5, 2017 12:10:00 PM

Panthers OT Michael Oher plans to attend the mandatory minicamp next month.

Oher is skipping OTAs for "personal matters" which reportedly reach beyond his concussion concerns and misdemeanor assault case, but the nature of those issues have not been reported. Oher is currently penciled in at right tackle, but it is not a given he earns medical clearance after losing his 2016 season to concussions. His future is truly up in the air.

The Charlotte Observer reports Panthers OT Michael Oher's absence from the offseason program is not just concussion-related.

Per reporter Joseph Person, Oher is dealing with "personal matters" beyond his misdemeanor assault case. He is also reported to be out of shape. Oher remains penciled in as the Panthers' right tackle, but second-rounder Taylor Moton looms as a back-up plan. There's been no indication Oher is close to being cleared from the concussion that wrecked his 2016.
Mon, May 22, 2017 02:54:00 PM

The next court date for Panthers LT Michael Oher in his misdemeanor assault case is June 6.

Oher was accused of assaulting an Uber driver in April. Oher's concussions remain the more worrying issue, as his health is unclear. The Panthers drafted tackle Taylor Moton in the second round. For now, he's more of an option on the right side, but that could change if Oher's status remains up in the air.
Tue, May 9, 2017 02:39:00 PM

Panthers LT Michael Oher has been accused of assaulting an Uber driver in Nashville.

Oher has been charged with misdemeanor assault. Oher is accused of knocking the driver to the ground after the driver "put his hand on Oher's face." The Panthers have said they are aware of the incident. The fact that Oher is being charged with a misdemeanor bodes well for his odds of avoiding league discipline. The bigger concern for Oher's 2017 is a 2016 that was wrecked by concussions.
Thu, May 4, 2017 06:04:00 PM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera thinks Michael Oher (concussion) will play in 2017.

Oher remains in the concussion protocol more than six months removed from the injury, but he seems to be progressing. The tackle has been working out at the Panthers' facility five times a week, and both GM Dave Gettleman and now Rivera have appeared optimistic about his chances of getting back on the field. With Matt Kalil set to take over at left tackle, Oher will likely slot in on the right side if he is able to return.
Thu, Mar 30, 2017 11:57:00 AM

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said Michael Oher remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Oher has been in the protocol for six months but seems to be progressing. He's been active in the weight room, working out at the Panthers' facility five times a week. "His workouts right now are not for the faint of heart," said Gettleman. "He’s down there grunting like everybody else." Oher still has a long road to recovery but at least it looks like he's heading in the right direction.
