Carolina Panthers release offensive tackle Michael Oher

Offensive tackle Michael Oher has been released by the Carolina Panthers after failing a physical.

In eight National Football League seasons split between Baltimore (2009-13), Tennessee (2014) and Carolina (2015-16), Oher has started all 110 regular season games he played.

"The brain is a scary thing", Oher tweeted after the news of his release broke.

Oher played three games last season before a concussion landed him on the inactive list for seven games.

According to police, Oher wasn't happy with the price of the ride. Guy really cares about you as a person just not the player.

Oher is most notably known as the inspiration for the Academy Award- nominated "The Blind Side" movie.

Girma Berkessa says in the complaint that an "extremely intoxicated" Oher pushed him to the ground, kicked him and called him a homophobic slur several times April 14. He joined the Panthers and started every regular-season game and three postseason games during Carolina's Super Bowl run.

Oher, one of the few players on social media to support former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman after he was sacked Monday, has a Friday court date in Nashville, Tennessee, after being charged with misdemeanor assault.

Oher was a first-round draft pick in 2009 and played in two Super Bowls, winning a championship with the Baltimore Ravens in February 2013.

It was the second move made by interim general manager Marty Hurney since being hired Wednesday.
