Dolphins waived RB LaMichael James.

James got in a fight with No. 1 receiver Jarvis Landry last week, and fumbled a kickoff in Sunday's win. It would be unusual for a fringe player to survive such twin calamities. Jonas Gray will now slide in behind Lamar Miller and Damien Williams. TE Jake Stoneburner has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move.

The Miami Herald believes LaMichael James is "challenging" Damien Williams for No. 2 duties behind Lamar Miller.

Per reporter Barry Jackson, James has "been productive in the first week of camp," both as a runner and receiver. Coach Joe Philbin praised Williams on Thursday, but also had good words for James for the second time in three days. Williams is by no means an impassable hurdle for James. Rookie Jay Ajayi doesn't appear to be in the mix for No. 2 duties.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin likes LaMichael James' "aggressiveness" in pass protection.

Philbin's comments come the same day Dolphins exec Mike Tannenbaum criticized fifth-rounder Jay Ajayi's early pass pro in camp. The Miami Herald has called Ajayi a "bit of a disappointment so far." Continued struggles from Ajayi would enhance James' odds of cracking the 53-man roster.

Dolphins re-signed RB LaMichael James to a one-year contract.

James appeared in two games with Miami last year after getting cut by the 49ers. With Daniel Thomas not expected to be re-signed, James will compete for a roster spot behind Lamar Miller and Damien Williams. 25-year-old James is a candidate for Miami's kick return job.

Dolphins signed RB LaMichael James off their practice squad.

It's confirmation that the Dolphins are worried about Lamar Miller's shoulder. James, who was cut by the 49ers earlier this season, will slide in along with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams if Miller can't go. As an undersized player that would only be part of a committee, he's not a strong add.

Dolphins signed RB LaMichael James to the practice squad.

James offers depth as a change-of-pace option, but a promotion is unlikely to be in line any time soon with Knowshon Moreno (elbow) nearing a return.
Tue, Sep 30, 2014 05:47:00 PM

Free agent RB LaMichael James worked out for the Dolphins on Tuesday.

It's James' first-known workout since he was cut by the 49ers last week. The Dolphins are extremely thin at running back after losing Knowshon Moreno to an elbow injury in Week 2, resorting to re-signing Daniel Thomas on Monday.

49ers waived RB LaMichael James.

James has long been trying to angle his way out of San Francisco, where he played two snaps in Week 1. He'll be subject to waivers, meaning all 31 other teams will have a chance to submit a claim. James brings a big NCAA name from Oregon, but has shown nothing more than scatback or package ability in the pros on limited opportunities. The fact that the 49ers were willing to simply dump him speaks volumes. James may get a look from RB-needy teams like the Cardinals or Ravens, but he's unlikely to find enough volume to be a fantasy contributor.
Mon, Sep 8, 2014 02:27:00 PM

49ers RB LaMichael James participated in Friday's practice without a brace on his dislocated elbow.

"I feel like I’m full-go," James said. "I don’t know if the doctors think that, yet. But I feel good." Originally expected to miss at least a month, James is back at practice less than three weeks after the injury. James hopes to play in the 49ers' final two preseason games, and should be ready to go Week 1.
Sat, Aug 16, 2014 01:31:00 PM

LaMichael James (elbow) returned to 49ers practice in a blue non-contact jersey Wednesday.

James is making a quick recovery from his third known elbow dislocation. He dislocated his left elbow in late July. James "caught a few passes and took handoffs in team drills" Wednesday. If Frank Gore went down -- at long last -- James might get some change-of-pace carries behind rookie Carlos Hyde.
Wed, Aug 13, 2014 08:41:00 PM

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said RB LaMichael James (elbow) is expected to be ready Week 1.

James is expected to miss a month after dislocating his elbow for the third time in his career. With Kendall Hunter also on the shelf, rookie Carlos Hyde has stepped in as the No. 2 back in San Francisco. James will serve as a return man and change of pace option when healthy.
Wed, Jul 30, 2014 03:16:00 PM

LaMichael James has now sustained three elbow dislocations in his career.

James suffered one in high school, one at Oregon in 2011 and then one on Sunday at 49ers camp. It's something to file away along with a 4-6 week timetable. If James can get healthy in time for Week 1, he'll be a return man and third tailback behind Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde.
Mon, Jul 28, 2014 11:15:00 AM

49ers RB/KR LaMichael James is expected to miss at least a month with a dislocated left elbow.

The once-deep 49ers may have to sign a running back after losing James for all of camp and Kendall Hunter to an ACL tear. Jewel Hampton now looks like a decent bet to make the 53 behind Frank Gore and rookie Carlos Hyde. When healthy, James will return as San Francisco's primary kickoff and punt returner, and No. 3 tailback. Marcus Lattimore (hamstring, knee) still can't practice.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 07:43:00 PM

49ers RB/KR LaMichael James was carted off the field during Sunday's practice with an apparent left arm injury.

The injury appeared to be James' wrist or arm, and the extent is unknown. It's another running back blow after San Francisco lost Kendall Hunter to a torn ACL. Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde, and Jewel Hampton are the Niners' only healthy backs. Marcus Lattimore (knee, hamstring) remains on the active/PUP list.
