Panthers quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey was lured out of retirement on Monday to play scout team quarterback with backups Derek Anderson and Garrett Gilbert out with an illness. His first pass was intercepted, which coach Ron Rivera called a good thing. He also felt Dorsey was the best option over several players interested in the job. “We figured it was safer than having [punter Michael] Palardy do it,'' Rivera joked. “We figured Ken is expendable, and Palardy is a little more valuable. . . . He was over there warming up. I said, ‘Are you kidding? Kick. That's all we ask is punt.' ''
