CHARLOTTE N.C. — The Carolina Panthers have terminated offensive tackle Michael Oher’s contract, the team announced Thursday in a news release obtained by WSOC.
Oher started the first three games of the 2016 season before a concussion caused him to be inactive for the next seven games and placed on injured reserve.
Oher joined the Panthers in 2015 and started all 16 regular season games and three postseason games for a Panthers team that won an NFC Championship and made an appearance in Super Bowl 50.
