He missed much of last season after suffering a concussion.

On Thursday, the Carolina Panthers made a decision to part ways with offensive tackle Michael Oher, citing a failed physical. Actress Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy, the woman who helped Oher rise despite homelessness and parents who battled addiction or spent time in prison.

"The most important thing is his health", Panthers head coach Ron Rivera told Panthers.com's Max Henson.

In last Sunday's Stage 9, Martin lost one minute and fifteen seconds on the leaders as a result of the crash. He had no challengers at the finish as he rode across the line alone to complete the victory.

"The brain is a scary thing", Oher tweeted after the news of his release broke.

Oher took to social media this afternoon, sharing a few thoughts about his release that has fans hoping he stays on the right track with his health. He faces a misdemeanor assault charge, stemming from an altercation with an Uber driver in April.

After this week's firing of Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman, Oher posted a strongly worded message on Instagram that said, in part, that Gettleman was the only member of the organisation (aside from team doctors) who checked on his well-being "constantly". "Michael understood and we expressed that to him", Rivera continued.

Oher was the subject of the movie "The Blind Side". In eight National Football League seasons Oher started all 110 regular season games he played.

Oher joined the Panthers in 2015 and started all 16 regular-season games at left tackle during a 15-1 season and run to the Super Bowl.
