Michael Oher of 'The Blind Side' released from Panthers following concussion issues

On Thursday, the Carolina Panthers chose to part ways with offensive tackle Michael Oher, citing a failed physical.

Oher remains in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Oher started the first three games last season for Carolina before suffering a concussion that kept him out the remainder of the season.

The team announced the "terminated vested veteran/failed physical" offensive lineman on Thursday.

Oher, one of the few players on social media to support former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman after he was sacked Monday, has a Friday court date in Nashville, Tennessee, after being charged with misdemeanor assault.

Congressional Sabotage of US-Russia Relations Continues
President Trump and Putin last week discussed the two diplomatic compounds but did not reach an agreement. Michael Flynn discussed the sanctions with Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak.

This move isn't very surprising. He joined the Panthers and started every regular-season game and three postseason games during Carolina's Super Bowl run. He was a member of the Ravens' Super Bowl championship team following the 2012 season.

"While on the plane headed to see concussion specialist Mickey Collins I learned that GM Dave Gettleman has been dismissed", Oher said on Instagram Tuesday. It's no joke that offensive tackle Michael Oher is on the downside of his National Football League career. Also he's always interested in how your family is as well.

Oher is eligible for injury compensation according to Jourdan Rodrigue, the Panthers beat writer for the Charlotte Observer.

It's the first personnel move under Panthers new interim general manager Marty Hurney, who was hired on Wednesday.
