Mike James: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Buccaneers on Wednesday, ESPN reports.

Following a three-year stint in Tampa Bay, the Bucs decided to part ways with James due to a lingering injury he can't seem to overcome. In the wake of his release, the team promoted rookie Peyton Barber from the practice squad and plucked Jacquizz Rodgers off the free agent market.

Mike James: Waived/injured by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James has been waived/injured by the Bucs.

It's unclear at this stage what James' injury issue is, but with the move, the Bucs are down to two running backs on their 53-man roster, a depth issue that will no doubt be addressed in short order by either a practice squad promotion or free agent signing.

Buccaneers' Mike James: Makes Bucs roster as third running back
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James has made the Bucs' 53-man roster, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The fourth-year back beat out undrafted rookies Peyton Barber and Russell Hansbrough for the job despite not having played in the final preseason game on Wednesday. James brings some experience as a young veteran, having tallied 79 carries over his first two seasons before not receiving a regular-season tote in the 2015 campaign. With Charles Sims often serving as a third-down, pass-catching back and potentially splitting out at receiver at times this coming season, it's conceivable that James could spell bell-cow back Doug Martin for a series or two on a weekly basis in 2016.

Buccaneers' Mike James: Contributes receiving TD in Saturday preseason victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James gained 17 yards on six carries and secured both of his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-21 preseason victory over the Jaguars.

The four-year pro is locked in a tight battle with both Peyton Barber and Storm Johnson for a backup running back job, and was able to find an end zone on a night when both of those players also made positive impressions. James secured a five-yard flip from Mike Glennon in the second quarter for a score, but found tough sledding on the ground for the second straight week. The former Hurricane has only 20 yards on 13 carries over the first pair of preseason contests, but has managed three receptions for 37 yards and Saturday's touchdown. The competition for a spot behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims figures to continue straight through the fourth and final preseason contest.

Buccaneers' Mike James: Gets extra reps in Tuesday practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James received extra reps in Tuesday's practice due to Charles Sims (ankle) sitting out the session, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The fourth-year back is once again trying to shore up a backup spot behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims. James didn't exclusively soak up the extra reps that opened up with Sims' absence, as fellow veteran Storm Johnson and rookie Peyton Barber also got a crack at some fill-in work. The additional time on the field shined a larger-than-usual spotlight on the trio, giving head coach Dirk Koetter a rare extended look at some of his backfield reinforcements. "I've always liked Mike James," Koetter said. "Mike James is a solid player, but he's in a battle right now with Storm Johnson and Peyton Barber. Your 3-4-5-6 running backs will get some good looks in the preseason."
