 Tampa,  FL (SportsNetwork.com)  - Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike James
 left  Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins in the first quarter with
 a fractured ankle.
 
 James  carried the ball  five times for 41 yards on the opening possession. On
 the  play he  was injured, James rushed  up the middle for three yards down to
 the  Miami 1-yard line. Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe tackled James from
 behind and appeared to land on the left ankle of James.
 
 James  was taken  to  the locker  room  on  a cart.  Bucs  coach Greg  Schiano
 confirmed the severity of the injury after the game.
 
 With  Doug  Martin on injured reserve,  Brian Leonard and Bobby Rainey are the
 only healthy running backs on the Tampa Bay roster.
