On Thursday, the Carolina Panthers made a decision to part ways with offensive tackle Michael Oher, citing a failed physical.

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.
