Mike James Breaks OutAugust 16th, 2013
Rather invisible through much of training camp and against the Ravens last week, rookie running back Mike James really introduced himself to Bucs fans tonight in Foxborough.
James got some first-team action after Doug Martin had his bell rung executing a cut block to open the Bucs’ second offensive series.
Two plays later, James ripped off an 11-yard run for the only first down of the first-teamers. He caught a short ball from Josh Freeman in between two sacks of the Bucs’ franchise quarterback.
James finished the first half with three carries for 33 yards, and two receptions for seven yards. More importantly under the New Schiano Order, James didn’t fumble.
