Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Panthers LT Michael Oher, who has been away from the team due to a medical issue, has reported to the team’s facility on Tuesday for the start of mandatory minicamp.
There had been questions about whether Oher will be able to resume his NFL career after suffering a season-ending concussion last year.
It’s also worth mentioning that Oher is accused of assaulting an Uber driver in Nashville, Tennessee.
Oher, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Ravens back in 2009. He spent five years in Baltimore before signing on with the Titans in 2014. After one season in Tennessee, the Panthers signed him to a two-year, $7 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $2.35 million for the 2016 season.
Carolina was impressed enough with Oher to sign him to a three-year extension back in June of last year worth $21.6 million and included $8 million fully guaranteed.
Unfortunately, Oher was placed on injured reserve after suffering a concussion.
In 2016, Oher has only appeared in three games for the Panthers but is rated by ProFootballFocus as the No. 49 overall tackle out of 79 qualifying players.
