Panthers Release Michael Oher Who Still Remains in Concussion Protocol From September
On Thursday, the Carolina Panthers decided to part ways with offensive tackle Michael Oher, citing a failed physical.
Oher played just three games last season in September because of a concussion he received. Almost one year later, he has yet to be cleared to play.

Oher had this to say about it on Twitter:
The Brain is a scary thing. You have to be careful with it.

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 worried about his longterm health.
