Free agent RB Javarris James was arrested on Thursday for failing to appear in court.
James' rap sheet has been growing since entering the league in 2010. In 2011, he was arrested for marijuana possession, and it was announced last month that he would be suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. James hasn't appeared in a game since 2010 with the Colts. Sat, Mar 9, 2013 04:19:00 PM

NFL suspended Cardinals restricted free agent RB Javarris James four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Edgerrin's cousin was a borderline NFL prospect already and is now highly unlikely to get a tender from the Cardinals. Javarris tore his ACL last preseason.

Cardinals RB Javarris James is out for the season with a torn ACL.

He'll be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. James tore the ACL in Thursday night's preseason finale. A middling-at-best talent, James was outplayed by unheralded William Powell before suffering the year-ending injury.

Cardinals RB Javarris James will be sidelined a "week or more" with an abductor muscle injury.

It's a hip injury for the third-year runner, who spent 2011 out of football after appearing in 10 games for the Colts as a rookie. If James' timeline holds to its "or more" portion, his already slim chances of cracking the Cardinals' 53-man roster could be toast.

Cardinals signed RB Javarris James, K/P Ricky Schmitt, CB Larry Parker, and S Eddie Elder.

Elder and Parker are UDFAs. The Cards could have aimed higher for a No. 5 back, but settled for Edgerrin's younger cousin. James is a subpar talent with appeal only as a short-yardage runner. Schmitt can both placekick and punt.

Free agent RB Javarris James participated in the Cardinals' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Another notable Cardinals tryout player was former Rams WR Keenan Burton. James, 24, was waived by the Colts at final cuts last season and spent the year out of football. He has below-average talent, but is keeping the dream alive.

Colts waived RB Javarris James.

James earned fantasy appeal in touchdown-heavy leagues last season as the Colts' desperation goal-line back, scoring six times on just 46 rush attempts. Edgerrin's little brother is just a borderline NFL talent. His release could be a sign that undrafted rookie Darren Evans has made the roster.

The News-Times in Miami reports that Colts RB Javarris James was arrested Thursday night for marijuana possession in Fort Myers, Florida.

The charge is a misdeamanor. NFL players are obviously smoking, or at least possessing, plenty of marijuana while lockout rules prohibit personal-conduct suspensions. That doesn't mean they won't go into effect after a new CBA. James, 23, was signed off the Redskins' practice squad last October and scored six fluky touchdowns as a short-yardage back. He didn't have a bright NFL future to begin with, and the arrest certainly won't help.

Colts declared Javarris James inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Mike Hart (ankle) is also inactive, showing how confident the Colts are in Joseph Addai's health. Other Colts inactives: G Jacques McClendon, G Jaimie Thomas, DT Daniel Muir, LB Clint Session, CB Kelvin Hayden and S Al Afalava.

The Indianapolis Star suggests that Javarris James will be the odd man out of the Colts' backfield with Joseph Addai (neck/shoulder) and Mike Hart (ankle) both making progress in their recoveries.

James has practice squad eligibility, and probably isn't talented enough to generate much interest on waivers. Dominic Rhodes is expected to keep his spot at the end of the tailback depth chart. Donald Brown obviously "isn't going anywhere," so by the start of the playoffs the Colts' backfield could evolve into a Brown-Addai-Hart rotation with Rhodes as fourth string.

Javarris James had just one carry for no yards in Sunday's win over the Jagaurs.

James got the call on a short-yardage play in the first half, but failed in convert. From there, the Colts either passed or used Donald Brown in short yardage. There were no true goal-line chances. James is also behind Dominic Rhodes for change-of-pace duties, leaving him off the fantasy radar.
Sun, Dec 19, 2010 05:32:00 PM

Javarris James led the Colts with 17 rushes for 49 yards and a touchdown against the Titans in Week 14.

James is a below-average NFL talent, but he continues to show a nose for the end zone. The Colts entrusted him with the feature back role down the stretch, and he outplayed a thoroughly underwhelming Donald Brown for a second straight week. The 17 touches were easily a career-high. He could be in line for a similar workload next week depending on the health of Joseph Addai and Mike Hart.
Fri, Dec 10, 2010 12:04:00 AM

Javarris James carried the ball six times for 18 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' Week 13 loss.

He also added two receptions for 17 yards. James was the most impressive of the team's running trio, though he started his day late with Dallas' defense already worn down. He punched in both of his goal line looks, and made a strong case for being active when Joseph Addai returns. It will be interesting to see which runner gets scratched once that happens. James is worth adding, but don't count on him to make an impact.
Sun, Dec 5, 2010 08:23:00 PM

Javarris James picked up zero yards on two carries and had three receptions for 22 yards in the Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

He also lost a fumble. James has been the team's goal-line back the last few weeks but didn't get a chance Sunday night. He remains a sketchy fantasy play, at best, even with Joseph Addai out, and he'll likely be inactive once Addai is ready.
Sun, Nov 28, 2010 11:35:00 PM

Phillip Wilson of the Indianapolis Star expects RB Javarris James (questionable, knee) to play in Week 12.

Wilson also speculates that Mike Hart (questionable, ankle) will join Joseph Addai (doubtful, neck/shoulder) on the sideline against San Diego, meaning James is the likely backup to Donald Brown. Colts-Chargers figures to turn into an aerial shootout, making James an unattractive option.
