San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) suffered a dislocated elbow Sunday, July 27. The team believes he can be back by the start of the regular season.

Though the 49ers general manager gave a vote of confidence to James as a punt returner, there may be competition brewing at kick returner should receiver David Reed make the roster.


With the season-ending injury to Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James appeared to be in the running for the 49ers' number two role behind Frank Gore. But James dislocated an elbow shortly after Hunter's injury and will miss all of training camp and the preseason. By the time he returns, it is expected that either Carlos Hyde or Marcus Lattimore will have secured the number two job. (July 29)

49ers | LaMichael James out of brace (Sat Aug 16, 12:14 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) is no longer wearing a brace on his dislocated elbow and believes he is ready to play. James has participated in the last two practices with a no contact jersey and been able to take handoffs, catch passes out of the backfield and field punts. He will not play in the second preseason game but believes he can play in the final two preseason games.

49ers | LaMichael James practices fully (Thu Aug 14, 12:09 AM) - San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) went through a full practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, for the first time since he dislocated his left elbow July 27. He was wearing a non-contact jersey.

Our View: We're unsure if James is going to play on Sunday against the Broncos. If he's in a non-contact jersey, we would be surprised to see him in action this week.
