James has been working with the starters, rotating between both safety spots, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
After being sidelined with a hamstring injury to begin training camp, James appears to be accumulating nicely in the secondary, rotating with nominal starting strong safety Jahleel Addae in an effort to give both players additional reps at each position. While Rayshawn Jenkins remains in contention for a major role, it would be a surprise if the 2018 first-round pick wasn't operating as the starting FS or SS by Week 1.
Selected 17th overall by the Chargers in this year's draft, James' training camp debut was delayed due to a slight hamstring injury. With the concern behind him, he can focus on locking down the starting free safety job within a productive secondary.
James has yet to participate in training camp as he nurses a minor hamstring injury, while the Chargers have proceeded cautiously in order to avoid any setbacks. The 2018 first-rounder could return to practice within the next week, as he'll be cleared to come off the NFI list at that point.
