Michael Oher Released by Carolina Panthers After Failed Physical

The Panthers have released the former starting left tackle Michael Oher after he failed a physical.

The Carolina Panthers announced Thursday they have terminated offensive tackle Michael Oher.

Oher also missed voluntary organized team activities and met with team doctors during the first day of Carolina's mandatory minicamp last month, but did not participate in workouts.

After spending one year with the Titans, Oher joined the Panthers in 2015 and played an integral part in the team's NFC championship.

This move isn't very surprising.

Before the concussion that ended his 2016 campaign, Oher had started 110 games throughout his career with the Baltimore Ravens and Panthers.

Oher defended former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman after Gettleman was sacked Monday.

"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.

In the 12-minute call that can be heard below (exclusive to The Tennessean), the Uber driver is out of breath and frantic for police to arrive as soon as possible, saying Oher bit him.

Earlier this week Oher defended former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman, who was sacked Monday.

It was the second move made by interim general manager Marty Hurney since being hired Wednesday.

He's eligible to receive a guaranteed $900,000 of his salary, according to ESPN.
