LaMichael James: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

James (elbow) practiced Wednesday without a non-contact jersey for the first time since injuring his elbow this offseason, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

James' status for Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers is still in question, but the original timetable of a month recovery seems to be spot on. It looks like he will be ready by the time the regular season starts, where he will serve as a backup running back and a kick return specialist.
James (elbow) returned to practice Wednesday, wearing a non-contact uniform and an elbow brace, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

James will train on his own in Texas, as the 49ers start their voluntary offseason conditioning program, CSN Bay Area reports.

While the workouts are voluntary, James' absence does nothing to dispel the notion that he would welcome a fresh start with a new team, after being used sparingly by the 49ers since being made a second-round draft choice in 2012.

2014

2013

Listed at 5-8, 194, James reportedly put on 10 pounds of muscle this offseason in order to improve his between-the-tackles running and pass-blocking skills. But there was never any doubt about his top-notch quickness, acceleration and long speed. For now, James and Kendall Hunter slot as backups to Frank Gore, but Gore's days of shouldering a monster workload are behind him, and Hunter is recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon. That means James should see more carries than a typical backup behind a huge and talented group of linemen. He'll also see some plays alongside Colin Kaepernick as a read-option threat, a formation that tends to open wide running lanes for back. And should Gore go down, James has a good deal of upside.

2012

Over his three years at Oregon, James totaled 5,665 yards with 57 touchdowns. The Ducks offense was anything but pro style, so there will be a major adjustment, but it’s hard to argue with that production. He’ll add much needed speed to the 49ers offense, but James also fights for yards after contact. Still, at 5-8, 194, and viewed as a “luxury” pick in the second round with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and Brandon Jacobs also on the roster, James will be used mostly as a change-of-pace back as a rookie, likely becoming more of a presence on punt returns down the road as well.
