Michael Oher returns to Charlotte

MICHAEL OHER RETURNS TO CHARLOTTE - CHARLOTTE - Embattled Panthers offensive tackle Michael Oher has arrived in Charlotte.

According to in-house reporter Bill Voth, Oher flew from Nashville to Charlotte on Tuesday morning, and will meet with doctors.

After practice Tuesday, Ron Rivera said he had not yet had a chance to speak with Oher, but that Dave Gettleman had.

"Dave made a statement the other day that we put out, and that's pretty much we're going to go with, and it's something that we're keeping in house right now," Rivera said.

Oher and the team had not been in contact since May 5, when Panthers GM Dave Gettleman flew to Nashville.

"This is not about football," Gettleman told the team website Tuesday. "Our No. 1 priority is Michael's health."

Oher, who has been in concussion protocol since September, is still awaiting a July trial in Nashville for allegedly assaulting an Uber driver in April.

The 31-year-old, who's inspiring story was made in to the book and movie "The Blind Side," caused concerns in Carolina last week after posting a picture of 10 pill bottles with the caption: "all for the brain smh."

The Panthers began a three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.

Missing the first day of minicamp would garner a $13,400 fine, although it is unclear if Oher will be fined.
