PANTHERS-RIVERA'S RETURN

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera returned to work Monday with a message for his players.

Rivera missed the previous two days of training camp practice to attend the funeral in Reno, Nevada for his brother Mickey, who died last week following a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

The fifth-year coach said Mickey was an inspiration to him, and that players can learn a lesson from the way his brother conducted his life.

Mickey Rivera sold everything several years ago and moved his family to Reno to purchase a Little Caesars pizza franchise. There, he worked tirelessly alongside his wife to build it into a successful business.

PANTHERS-LOTULELEI

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Panthers starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was carted to the locker room with his right foot taped in ice.

It's the same foot that Lotulelei fractured in January, preventing him from playing in the team's NFC divisional playoff game against Seattle.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday after practice the 2013 first-round draft pick has been experiencing soreness in the ankle and was taken to the locker room as a precautionary measure. Rivera said Dr. Robert Anderson would look at Lotulelei after practice.

Rivera says "it just started to get sore, so doc just felt it would be better to take it in. We might be being overly protective about it."

Lotulelei, considered a space eater in the middle of Carolina's defensive line, had 27 tackles and two sacks last season.

NORTH CAROLINA BEGINS

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina started preseason practice with suspended cornerback Malik Simmons returning to the team.

Coach Larry Fedora said Monday he reinstated Simmons and will "wait and see this thing play out."

Simmons was suspended from all football-related activities July 24, after he was arrested earlier that week in Chapel Hill on a resisting arrest charge. He also was arrested May 16 on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession.

He had been due in court Monday but a spokeswoman for the Orange County clerk of court's office said that court appearance is now scheduled for Thursday.

The 21-year-old went through drills in shorts and a helmet along with the rest of his teammates during the Tar Heels' first practice.
