Five months after a promising rookie season ended with a broken left ankle, Buccaneers running back Mike James said he's pleased with his recovery and is running and cutting.
"The healing process is going well," James said. "I've got a good opportunity to do what I need to do to get back in the swing of things and get acclimated with everything."
Asked if he has been cleared to participate in the first minicamp (April 22-24), James said the team is still "taking everything day by day." His focus is on getting back to full strength and full speed.
James will compete with Bobby Rainey for touches behind Doug Martin.
