'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.

Ndamukong Suh might've gotten himself in trouble with another nasty play on the field.

Suh's illegal low block in Detroit's game on Sunday against Minnesota will be reviewed for potential discipline, NFL spokesman Randall Liu confirmed Monday in an email to The Associated Press.

Suh, a Lions defensive tackle, hit Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return and the penalty against him negated a touchdown during Detroit's 34-24 win.

Suh said he wasn't going after Sullivan's knees, adding the two talked about it at halftime.

“I spoke to him, we're good,” Suh said after Sunday's game. “So that's all that matters.”

Minnesota defensive lineman Jared Allen said there's no place for that type of hit.

“I got to know Suh at the Pro Bowl last year, and he's a good dude, but that's uncalled for,” Allen told reporters Sunday in Detroit.

Miller suspension costly

Von Miller's six-game suspension could end up costing him more than $2 million.

He'll lose about $800,000 in salary and approximately $1.2 million more in the prorated portion of his signing bonus that he'll have to forfeit for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, according to the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Both NFL spokesman Michael Signora and Miller's agent, Joby Branion, said they couldn't discuss Miller's case.

Raiders going with Pryor

Raiders coach Dennis Allen knows who his starting quarterback will be this week.

Jeanette native Terrelle Pryor answered all questions in the season opener with his game-breaking running ability and vastly improved passing that almost helped Oakland pull off a shocker before losing, 21-17, at Indianapolis.

Allen is all in with Pryor heading into Sunday's home opener against Jacksonville.

Injury won't sideline Romo

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo should be able to keep playing through a rib injury suffered against the New York Giants.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the quarterback will be sore, but that X-rays were negative and he wouldn't miss Sunday's game at Kansas City.

Around the league

The Bears have signed offensive tackle Jonathan Scott to a one-year contract. ... The Jaguars ruled out quarterback Blaine Gabbert for Sunday's game at Oakland. ... Jets receiver Jeremy Kerley has a concussion, and could miss Thursday night's game at New England. ... Jaguars cornerback Dwayne Gratz will miss at least the next three games with a high ankle sprain.
