'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.

• Ravens running back Ray Rice suffered a strained hip flexor against the Browns. The Baltimore Sun reported initial tests don't show any major issues, and Rice is not scheduled for an MRI exam. “We're confident and optimistic right now,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “We'll have to see how he responds.”

• Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was forced out of the Ravens' game with an injured right thumb in the fourth quarter and could miss next week. “It really hurts,” Weeden said. “The X-rays are negative, so that's a good thing.”

• Lions running back Reggie Bush will have an MRI on his left knee after he was injured in the loss to Arizona, ESPN reported. “We'll see what happens this week; I'm not sure,” Bush said. “I don't think it's anything serious.”

• Rookie running back Eddie Lacy was knocked out of the Packers' home opener against Washington with a concussion.

• Running backs Steven Jackson (thigh) of the Falcons and Maurice Jones-Drew (ankle) of the Jaguars left their respective games and didn't return.

• Chargers receiver Malcom Floyd was hospitalized with a neck injury after a hard hit against the Eagles.

• Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has torn hip adductor muscles, Fox Sports reported. He may also have a sports hernia, which could sideline him about a month.

• Colts left guard Donald Thomas (knee) will miss the rest of the season.

Rick Casares, a star running back for the Bears who was once their all-time leading rusher, died. He was 82.
