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

Panthers release Michael Oher

Along with being sued Thursday, Oher was also terminated from the Carolina Panthers. In 2016, Oher appeared in only three games before concussion issues forced him to miss the remaining 13 games.

The 31-year-old posted and quickly deleted an Instagram photo showing 10 pill bottles with the caption, "all for the brain" back in June that had everybody anxious about his longterm health.

The 31-year-old blocker, a member of Baltimore's 2013 Super Bowl championship squad, has been in the National Football League concussion protocol since last September. He was cited for misdemeanor assault and later turned himself in. Person reports the Panthers will save $1.69 million versus the cap with Oher's release.

The Panthers had left Oher off their unofficial 2017 depth chart released last month, a sign the team was leaning toward releasing him.




A source told the Observer that Oher does qualify for injury compensation.

Oher is accused of assaulting an Uber driver in April. He started 16 games during the regular season and three postseason games in his first year with the franchise.

The Carolina Panthers new general manager has wasted no time getting settled into his new role.

The former Pro Bowl offensive lineman joined the Panthers in 2015 after brief stint with the Tennessee Titans. He also was a big part of Carolina's 2015 NFC Championship-winning team that ultimately fell to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
