Panthers Place LT Michael Oher & CB Zach Sanchez On Injured Reserve

The Carolina Panthers announced on Friday that they have placed LT Michael Oher and CB Zach Sanchez on injured reserve.

Oher, 30, 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 that is worth $21.6 million and included $8 million fully guaranteed.

He has not played since Week 3 after sustaining a concussion, so it is clear to see he has not close to returning to health.

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.
