The Panthers have entrusted Cam Newton’s blindside to the services of left tackle Michael Oher – who was picked up as a free agent after being released by the Titans. After starting 11 games in Tennessee, Oher was placed on injured reserved due to a toe injury, so naturally when he spoke with the media following OTA’s his health would be a primary topic of discussion.
Michael Oher says toe feels “excellent … hasn’t felt this good since I entered the NFL.”

I’ve heard that before…I’ll believe it when I see it.
The Panthers are taking a big risk with Oher in hopes that he can revitalize his career after a disappointing last few years. If he can’t stay healthy or perform well enough to anchor one of team’s weakest spots, Carolina will be in trouble.
