The Charlotte Observer Interviews Dr. Williams About Panthers Michael Oher Remaining in Concussion Protocol


The Carolina Panthers still hope left tackle Michael Oher will play again this season, despite the fact that Oher remains in the concussion protocol nearly two months after first experiencing symptoms.

Oher has missed the past six games and the team has said little about the nature of his symptoms during the time he’s been sidelined.

But a league source said Oher is experiencing sensitivity to light, as well as issues involving his vestibular ocular system, which is responsible for integrating vision, movement and balance.
