'Blind Side' Michael Oher released from Panthers

'Blind Side' Michael Oher released from Panthers

Offensive tackle Michael Oher has been in the concussion protocol since September.

It's easy to point to Michael Oher's social media post as the primary factor in the Carolina Panthers' decision to cut ties with the tackle on Thursday.

"The most important thing is his health", head coach Ron Rivera told the team's official website.

The Panthers had left Oher off their unofficial 2017 depth chart released last month, a sign the team was leaning toward releasing him. "Michael's health always came first". In May, Oher was accused of assaulting an Uber driver in Nashville, Tennessee, according to Nashville Police. We were not going to force the issue.

Oher, 31, played in just three games last season while dealing with a concussion.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also expressed his disappointment with the sanctions, promising "an appropriate response". On Monday, Washington confirmed that Iran had met its obligations under its nuclear deal, reached in 2015.

The biggest question now for Oher is, should he retire or continue to pursue an National Football League career?

Oher is most notably known as the inspiration for the Academy Award- nominated "The Blind Side" movie.

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

The Panthers hired former general manager Marty Hurney as their interim general manager on Wednesday.

After spending one year with the Titans, Oher joined the Panthers in 2015 and played an integral part in the team's NFC championship. He was a member of the Baltimore's Super Bowl XLVII championship team following the 2012 season.
