Eagles' Craig James: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports.

James was unavailable for Philadelphia's Nov. 1 matchup against the Cowboys because of a hamstring injury, and he was once again made inactive ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Giants, though this time with a shoulder issue. The cornerback suffered the shoulder injury this past week, and now he will be unavailable for at least three games with his IR designation. James has been used primarily on special teams this season, fielding 80 snaps in that department to just 14 on the defensive side.

Eagles' Craig James: Will miss second consecutive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Giants.

James missed the Eagles' last game due to a hamstring injury, and while he shook off that issue, the 24-year-old cornerback picked up a shoulder injury and missed practice Thursday and Friday. His absence will mainly affect the team's secondary depth, and he'll look to heal up for next week's clash against Cleveland.

Eagles' Craig James: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (hamstring) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports.

James missed Week 8's win over the Cowboys with the hamstring issue, but he appears on track to return to the lineup. The special teams captain has seen the majority of his snaps on that side of the ball this season, so expect him to do so again in Sunday's game against the Giants.

Eagles' Craig James: Set to miss Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Giants.

The Eagles will likely bring up a cornerback from the practice squad because Cre'von LeBlanc (quadriceps) has also been ruled out, leaving just Darius Slay, Avonte Maddox and Nickell Robey-Coleman as the healthy cornerbacks. James will look to return in a game against the Giants following the team's Week 9 bye.

Eagles' Craig James: Injures hamstring Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Giants due to a hamstring injury, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

James was forced off the field midway through the fourth quarter, so the depth cornerback may be facing long odds to return to action Thursday. His contributions are usually relegated to special teams.

Eagles' Craig James: Returning to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles activated James (thigh) from injured reserve Saturday.

James began practicing Wednesday and got through the week without a setback, so he'll return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Steelers. The Southern Illinois product played exclusively on special teams in his only game this season and likely will handle a similar regimen Sunday.

Eagles' Craig James: Practice window activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Philadelphia activated a 21-day practice window for James (thigh) on Wednesday.

This move means the team will have 21 days to decide whether to remove James from IR or transfer him to IR for the remainder of the season, and that James is able to resume practicing in the meantime. If the team opts to activate him, such a move could happen as soon as before Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.

Eagles' Craig James: Placed on injured reserve Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (thigh) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

James will land on IR, as expected, and will be out at least three weeks. Cre'Von LeBlanc should see some additional special teams opportunities with James out.

Eagles' Craig James: Set to miss multiple games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said James (undisclosed) will miss multiple weeks, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

It's uncertain exactly what James is dealing with, but the special-teams asset likely won't return until October. If the team believes he could miss more than three weeks, he'll likely land on IR. Without James, Cre'von LeBlanc is the No. 4 cornerback moving forward.

Eagles' Craig James: Signed to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James was signed to the Eagles' active roster Tuesday.

James, who previously resided on Philadelphia's practice squad, logged 11 special-teams snaps compared to one defensive snap for the Eagles in Week 2 against Atlanta. He figures to again serve as depth/special-teams player during Thursday's game against the Packers, but that could change quickly if an injury forces another cornerback to join starter Ronald Darby (hamstring) on the sidelines. Wide receiver Greg Ward was waived in a corresponding transaction.

Craig James: Waived by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James was cut by Philadelphia on Tuesday.

James played 12 snaps in the Eagles' Week 2 loss to Atlanta, 11 of which came on special teams, but he now finds himself without an NFL home. At just 23 years of age, time remains on James' side. While he's likely to find a new team before long, don't expect the young corner to be fantasy relevant in 2019.

Vikings' Craig James: Signs with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James was promoted to Minnesota's 53-man roster from their practice squad Tuesday.

James spent the last six weeks on the Vikings' practice squad before achieving a promotion. The rookie out of Southern Illinois will likely hold a limited depth role in the secondary while he remains on the roster.

Craig James: Waived by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (hamstring) was waived with an injury settlement by the Vikings on Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

James sustained the hamstring injury in the preseason finale Aug. 31 and was waived/injured by the Vikings at roster cutdowns a couple days later. The 22-year-old reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers but can now sign elsewhere after reaching the injury settlement.

Vikings' Craig James: Heading to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (hamstring) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

It isn't clear what kind of injury James is dealing with, but he's nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Vikings' Craig James: Waived/injured by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (hamstring) was waived/injured by the Vikings on Saturday.

James was always considered a long shot to make the Vikings' final roster. He'll now revert to the team's injured reserve once he clears waivers.

Vikings' Craig James: Dealing with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James left Thursday's preseason game against the Titans with a hamstring injury, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

James was listed doubtful to return, although the severity of the injury is not known. The 22-year-old out of Southern Illinois is fighting for a roster spot as a depth cornerback.
