Carolina Panthers‘ Michael Oher reported to mandatory minicamp Tuesday, a source told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, amid concerns over the offensive tackle’s health after he posted – then deleted – a photo of several empty bottles with the caption: “All for the brain smh.”
Oher has been in concussion protocol since November and Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman expressed his concern for the veteran tackle, who he says he hasn’t spoken to since May 5.
“We really had a great visit. We talked for an hour, had lunch, it was a very comfortable conversation. We talked about a lot of things – nothing about football. It was about him, how he was doing and the issues he was dealing with,” Gettleman said. “It started and ended well. And after we met, Michael did follow up for a few days. However, the communication has stopped.
“Our No. 1 priority is a healthy Michael Oher. This is not about football, this is about Michael.”
