Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike James rushed five times for 41 yards against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football before leaving with an ankle injury. James was averaging 5.6 yards per carry before he went down. Brian Leonard got the bulk of the carries early on and finished with 20 carries for 57 yards and a 3.4 yards per carry average. Bobby Rainey got hot and got a lot of playing time in the second half, finishing with eight carries for 45 yards and a touchdown for a 5.6 yards per carry average.
Fantasy impact: The extent of James' injury is unknown but it is reportedly a fractured ankle. It's a disappointing injury for a young player who was looking good before he went down. Leonard and Rainey will get the bulk of the carries going forward with Leonard likely seeing time on passing downs due to pass protection. The Buccaneers will face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11.
