'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.

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was placed on injured reserve-designated for return, meaning he will not be able to play for the next eight weeks.

Sanchez injured his right shoulder in the team's third preseason game. He has opted to try to rehabilitate the injury rather than have season-ending surgery.

The injury reportedly is a partially torn labrum.

“As far as making a decision that's best for the team and best for my medical health, we're all on the same page,” Sanchez said. “I'll come back, hopefully, in eight weeks and be ready to play.”

The earliest Sanchez could be back is Nov. 17 at Buffalo, following the Jets' bye week.

Geno Smith, a rookie out of West Virginia, has started the Jets' first two games and it appears will continue to be under center.

Redskins sign kicker, cut QB White

The Redskins signed kicker John Potter as their contingency plan in case Kai Forbath is unable to kick Sunday against the Packers.

To make room for Potter on the roster, the Redskins released fourth-string quarterback and former West Virginia star Pat White.

Forbath has a sore groin in his kicking leg. It first flared up in practice Thursday.

Report: Chiefs CB will miss Cowboys game

Chiefs cornerback Dunta Robinson is not expecting to play against the Cowboys on Sunday, ESPN reported.

Robinson missed practice all week after coach Andy Reid excused him to attend to an undisclosed family matter.

According to the report, Robinson went home after a first cousins lapsed into a coma after being hit by a vehicle.
