'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.

Jason Campbell is finally getting a chance to start at quarterback for the reeling Browns, who are turning to the veteran to settle things down and save a season.

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski benched ineffective starter Brandon Weeden and will go with Campbell on Sunday against the unbeaten Chiefs.

Campbell will be the third QB to start for Cleveland this season.

• Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder likely will start against the Packers as Josh Freeman is suffering from concussion-like symptoms.

• A tender ankle forced Peyton Manning to miss practice for the first time since joining the Broncos last year. Manning said he plans to return to practice Thursday.

• Eagles quarterback Michael Vick went through a second consecutive practice with no setbacks, but the injured veteran said he still needs to test out his injured hamstring before deciding if he can play Sunday.

• Falcons running back Steven Jackson, who has missed four straight games with a hamstring injury, practiced Wednesday and said he feels ready to “give it a go.”

• Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, who has a torn labrum, is officially out for Thursday's game.

• The Bills are uncertain whether running back C.J. Spiller, nursing an injured ankle, will play Sunday.

• Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has had his two-game suspension cut in half. He was flagged for a helmet-to-helmet and for a helmet-first hit to the head and neck area against the Bears.
