The Tennessee Titans released Michael Oher, less than a year after the team signed him to a four-year contract. Oher was placed on injured reserve late in the season with a toe injury, which required surgery, but he also dealt with a bicep injury during the preseason which made it harder for him to play to his best ability. Oher struggled pretty badly in 2014. By releasing him, the team admitted the mistake rather than invest further in the long term player whose season was cut short by injuries and from being an unreliable player. This was a credible source because it was on the Titans webpage and it went into detail about his injuries and why he was taken off the team.
Michael Oher has been placed on injured reserve, which is one of the six moves made by the Panthers before they embarked on a 10-day trip for games at Oakland and Seattle. Oher, who has been in the concussion protocol since September, is one of three Panthers no longer on the roster. Rookie cornerback Zack Sanchez was also was placed on injured reserve, and offensive tackle Donald Hawkins was not to be considered for the spot. I really liked this article because it was from a direct source and they gave a lot of information about how many players they lost due to head related injuries and how many times they had to replace Ohers spot.
Carolina released Oher last week after failing his team physical. The 31-year-old has been in the NFL concussion protocol since last September. Oher started the first three games last season for the Panthers before suffering a concussion that kept him out for the rest of the season. Mike Freeman talked to a former Panthers player who spoke of his fear about the life-changing consequences repeated head injuries have on NFL players. This website was credible because it talked about how he failed his physical and how long he was out for concussion protocol. They also talked about how Michael tried to shrug it off and keep playing until it got to the point where he couldn’t play anymore to his best ability
Oher spends nine months in NFL concussion protocol. After recent CTE tests on NFL players, data regarding CTE was released and shocked the NFL community. “If you play for the NFL, you will get CTE” This is credible because it shows how rough NFL players have it; they may be making all kinds of money and playing the sport they love but they are putting their mental and physical health at risk. Two days after the CTE data was released, John Urschel, 26, quit the NFL and is now going for his doctorate in mathematics at MIT. This website was credible because it talked about how the CTE scared off different players and why. It also had a little information about how CTE’s are pretty much expected in the NFL and why that is.
Oher was released after two seasons from the Panthers after developing concussion-like symptoms. Return time became unpredictable so the team had to replace his roster spot. There wasn’t much on this website to look at and read. I do not find this website credible. The lack of information made it hard for me to understand why they released him and how he got hurt.
