11/11/14 - RB LaMichael James was signed by the Dolphins from their practice squad Monday (Nov. 10). The 5-foot-9, 195-pound, James joined Miami from the San Francisco 49ers where he spent parts of three seasons (2012-14) after being selected by the 49ers in the second round (61st overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. James was released by San Francisco on September 8, 2014 and was signed to Miami's practice squad on September 30, 2014. He has appeared in 15 career games and has rushed for 184 yards on 41 carries (4.5 avg.) while catching five passes for 45 yards (9.0 avg.).

11/03/14 - RB LaMichael James, who is on the practice squad, could be signed to the 53-man roster due to an injury to Lamar Miller against San Diego.

09/08/14 - RB LaMichael James was waived Monday. The team's third-string running back and second-string return man rushed twice for no yards in Sunday's win over Dallas. Citing a diminishing role, James had requested a trade or to be waived during the preseason.
07/27/14 - RB LaMichael James sustained a dislocated elbow during practice Sunday, CSNBayArea.com reported. James will be sidelined about a month, according to the report.
James, who is entering his third NFL season, was the 49ers' top punt returner last season and carried the ball just 12 times for 59 yards in 2013. However, he was expected to get more playing time on offense after Kendall Hunter suffered a season-ending ACL injury on Friday.
James was injured during a routine blitz pickup drill, and his absence depletes the depth behind starter Frank Gore. Gore, Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton are the 49ers' only healthy running backs. Marcus Lattimore remains on the non-football injury list as he continues to rehabilitate from a knee injury he sustained in 2012.
