Draft Scout Mike James News
08/17/14 - RB Mike James suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday's game against the Dolphins and probably won't play next Saturday at Buffalo, coach Lovie Smith said. "I've got to be careful what I say right now, but we're not in as good of shape as we were before."
11/12/13 - --RB Mike James suffered a broken ankle in Monday's game and will be the team's fourth running back placed on injured reserve.
11/06/13 - --RB Mike James rushed for 158 yards in only his second start at Seattle last Sunday. That performance ranks tied for ninth on the Bucs single-game rushing list.
11/04/13 - RB Mike James provided the play of the day with a 2-yard jump pass to tight end Tom Crabtree, who had fallen down in the end zone.
"We've run that for a number of weeks getting it ready," coach Greg Schiano said. "We felt like the situation was right. It almost went awry. Tom Crabtree fell down, he caught it but fell backward making the catch."
10/22/13 - RB Mike James is expected to see extensive action Thursday when RB Doug Martin likely sidelined due to a shoulder injury. When Martin got hurt in the third quarter Sunday, James stepped in and had 14 carries for 45 yards along with three catches for 8 yards. James also enabled Mike Glennon's 59-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson with a great blitz pickup, stepping in front of rushing cornerback Desmond Trufant.
Coach Greg Schiano said the 5-foot-10, 223-pound James has a "really good one-cut ability," with quick feet that can make defenders miss. The physical runner always seems to fall forward, gaining the extra yard, as he did on a fourth-and-1 conversion Sunday in Atlanta.
