'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Ravens didn't remove Ray Lewis from the injured reserve Saturday, according to a person with knowledge of the decision.

Last week it was thought that Lewis, who tore his right triceps Oct. 14, would be activated as early as last weekend. But the linebacker won't be available for the ailing Ravens vs. the New York Giants on Sunday in Baltimore.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said this week Lewis is “coming along” in his return to practice. The team is 4-4 since losing the 37-year-old, two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

The Ravens (9-5) have lost three in a row while suffering several injuries which have hampered the defense.

Linebacker Jameel McClain was placed on the injured reserve with a spine injury, and linebacker Adrian Hamilton was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. McClain joins cornerback Lardarius Webb on IR.

If inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe's injured ankle keeps him out of a fourth game in a row, reserves Josh Bynes and Brendon Ayanbadejo are expected to start at the inside linebacker positions in Baltimore's 3-4 defense.

Jaguars linebacker Smith returns

The Jaguars activated linebacker Daryl Smith from injured reserve and placed safety Dwight Lowery on IR with a foot injury.

Smith likely will start Sunday's game against New England.

Smith missed the first 14 games of the season because of a groin injury. He was placed on IR on Oct. 25, with the designation to return.
