'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.

OTTAWA -- Right wing Tyler Kennedy will miss at least a month, and possibly six weeks, with a sprained knee.

The Penguins made Kennedy's injury status official Friday after their plane landed in Ottawa, where they will play the Senators today.

Kennedy (six goals, 15 points in 24 games) was injured Wednesday in a shootout loss against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. He left that contest in the third period and did not return.

Kennedy returned to Pittsburgh on Thursday and was evaluated by a team physician yesterday morning. The team placed him on injured reserve.

The Penguins have recently recalled forwards Janne Pesonen and Chris Minard, each of whom played at Carolina on Thursday. Aside from Kennedy, the Penguins are also down center Mike Zigomanis, who is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

The team did not update Zigomanis' status yesterday.
