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. Mar 24 - 1:49 PM

Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers are "cautiously optimistic" about Michael Oher (concussion) continuing his career.

Oher has still not cleared the concussion protocol over six months removed from originally suffering the injury, but he has been working out at the stadium, suggesting he plans to make a comeback. If Oher is able to play, he will likely switch to right tackle with new signing Matt Kalil taking over on the left side.

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman confirmed LT Michael Oher remains in the concussion protocol.

Oher has been in the protocol for six months, and Gettleman indicated the Panthers aren't counting on him. "We’re in the unknown," Gettleman said. "And we’re going to move forward. We’ve got a plan and we’ll just see where it goes. I can’t give you anything more than that." With Oher's future up in the air and Mike Remmers headed to free agency, Carolina has two big holes at tackle.

Speaking Thursday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera confirmed LT Michael Oher remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Rivera said Oher is "progressing," for whatever that's worth. Oher has been sidelined since September. It's a scary situation.
Feb 2 - 3:57 PM

Panthers LT Michael Oher has not yet cleared the NFL's concussion protocol.

It's more than a little concerning four months after Oher went down. The Panthers may have to approach the offseason as if anything they get from Oher is a bonus for 2017. "I haven’t spoken to Michael in a little bit," GM Dave Gettleman admitted. "I haven’t texted with him in a little bit. I want to back off and leave him alone. Because we want what’s best for Michael, really and truly."
Jan 29 - 1:31 PM

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said he still doesn't know the status of LT Michael Oher (concussion) for 2017.

Gettleman said he's going to look at tackles in free agency and the draft, sounding like a guy who isn't willing to tie himself to Oher. Oher missed the final 13 games of this past season after suffering a concussion in Week 2. Shoring up the offensive line should be atop Gettleman's offseason to-do list.

Panthers LT Michael Oher (concussion, injured reserve) is expected to continue his playing career in 2017.

Oher started experiencing headaches following Week 2, but played the following week. He was then shut down for what would turn out to be the season. Now on the wrong side of 30, Oher signed a three-year extension in June, but the Panthers are going to need a backup plan for 2017.

Panthers placed LT Michael Oher (concussion) on injured reserve.

Oher will miss his second game in a row after reporting concussion symptoms last week. RT Mike Remmers will once again switch to the left side with Daryl Williams handling the right tackle duties. Remmers was a disaster last week, but the Bucs are extremely banged up on the defensive line. It will be weakness against weakness Monday night.
