Michael Oher Reportedly at Panthers Minicamp, Currently in Concussion Protocol

Offensive lineman Michael Oher wasn't at the first day of mandatory Panthers minicamp, though Rivera said he is in Charlotte.

Oher was not on the field however, according to the ESPN report.

Oher missed 13 games last season after being placed in concussion protocol following Carolina's Week 3 loss to Minnesota.

According to Person, Oher did not attend OTAs, and as of last week it was unclear if he meant to show up at minicamp.

Cam Newton is not set to begin throwing this week, which is contrary to what Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera had said.

Oher was back in Charlotte on Tuesday after a month of not communicating with team officials.

Carolina Panthers tackle Michael Oher (73) on the bench in the fourth quarter.

The 31-year-old is entering his third season with the Panthers, and second year of a three-year, $21.6 million deal he signed with the team ahead of last season.

Daryl Williams, who made 10 starts at right tackle a year ago in place of Oher, and second-round draft pick Taylor Moton would likely battle for the starting spot if Oher can't go.

McCaffrey isn't allowed to practice until Thursday when Stanford has completed its final semester of school.

"I have seen a holdout and all that stuff and I have really never seen it work, so that was never in my mind to: 'I'm not going to go to OTAs to get a new contract, '" Beckham said.
