Oher in concussion protocol, will sit for Panthers

The Panthers must shuffle their offensive line with news that starting left tackle Michael Oher is in the concussion protocol and won't face the Falcons on Sunday.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera doesn't expect DE Charles Johnson (quad) to miss his final game in the Georgia Dome.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he will move some players around "and go from there." Mike Remmers could move from right to left which would mean Daryl Williams at right.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers injury report for Friday: LT Michael Oher has a concussion and is in the protocol. He will not play against Atlanta. RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) and DT Vernon Butler (ankle) also will not play against Atlanta as has been the case all week. DE Charles Johnson (quad) is questionable.
