CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Buccaneers running back Mike James came out of the gates smoking, logging 41 rushing yards on his first five carries of the game. But James was carted off the field of the Dolphins-Bucs game in the first quarter. He suffered a fractured ankle.

Fantasy Impact:

James is now done for the season. It's unfortunate for James who looked like he was on his way to a huge night coming off a big Week 9 performance. The Bucs mostly turned to Brian Leonard who finished with 20 carries for 57 yards. But Bobby Rainey was much more productive on his eight carries, rushing for 45 yards and a TD. It looks like it's going to be a timeshare as far as the Tampa running game goes.

Doug Martin out for year with torn labrum

Bucs RB Doug Martin suffered a torn labrum yesterday against the Falcons, and is out for the year.

Fantasy Impact:

Reports have been all over the place since last night, but more and more are saying the worst for Martin. Bucs coach Greg Schiano, however, said he doesn't believe the injury is season-ending, but refused to give a timetable for Martain's return. Any missed time is bad news for the Bucs and Martin owners, who likely spent a very early pick in this year's drafts. Martin was only averaging 3.6 yards a carry this season, putting the Bucs 20th in the league in rushing yards. To make things worse, it's a quick turnaround in Week 8 for a Thursday night game hosting the Panthers. Brian Leonard and Mike James will likely get work, but there are some tough matchups the next few weeks that will limit their values.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has no timetable on RB Cedric Peerman.

Fantasy Impact:

It's being called an ankle sprain. Brian Leonard will likely back up BenJarvus Green-Ellis if Peerman misses time.
