San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday, Dec. 4, there is a possibility RB LaMichael James could see action in Week 14. According to Harbaugh, James has 'worked hard for an opportunity' and his debut is 'something that's definitely a possibility.' With backup RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles') out for the season, the team turned to RB Brandon Jacobs in Week 13, but he chipped in with four carries for six yards.
49ers | LaMichael James familiar with offense
11.29.2012 3:42:49 PM EST
Even though San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James hasn't been active for any games this year, he may have the best shot to become the backup to RB Frank Gore. James and QB Colin Kaepernick ran a zone-read offense effectively together in the preseason, and James ran a similar offense in college at Oregon. However, James has spent almost all of his practice time on the scout team this year, and he hasn't had much experience in special teams, which could hurt his chances. RB Anthony Dixon has been active every game this year because he is vital to the special teams. RB Brandon Jacobs doesn't make any special teams contributions either, so if James is active over Dixon, the team will have two backup running backs who don't contribute on special teams.
