'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.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes (quadriceps), fullback Dan Kreider (ankle), tackle Marvel Smith (coach's decision) and wide receiver Hines Ward (coach's decision) returned to practice on a full-participation basis. Free safety Ryan Clark (spleen), defensive end Aaron Smith and tight end Jerame Tuman (back) did not practice.

"I did some running, and I think it went well," Aaron Smith said. "I'm always optimistic, but you never know. We'll see what happens."

• For the Ravens, linebacker Antwan Barnes (thigh), center Mike Flynn (knee), quarterback Steve McNair (groin), defensive tackle Trevor Pryce (wrist), tight end Quinn Sypniewski (knee) and tackle Adam Terry (ankle) practiced. Tight end Todd Heap (thigh) and cornerback Chris McAlister (knee) participated on a limited basis.

• Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians expressed the highest possible praise for Ravens free safety Ed Reed on Thursday.

"Ed's a great player," Arians said. "I personally think he's the best (of the NFL's safeties). I love (Steelers SS) Troy (Polamalu), and I think he's good, but Ed is really good."
