Bucs RB Mike James has fractured ankle, out indefinitely

After a strong start on Monday Night Football, Buccaneers rookie running back Mike James was carted off the field with an ankle injury that could end his season.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, x-rays revealed that James has a fractured ankle and he is out indefinitely.

James had five carries for 41 yards to start the game before sustaining his injury after rushing for 158 yards on 28 carries last week against the Seahawks.

With James out, the team's top two running backs are Brian Leonard and Bobby Rainey, who are owned in only four and one percent of Yahoo! leagues, respectively.

Leonard and Rainey get a favorable matchup in Week 11 against the Falcons, who have allowed backs to rush for 492 and three touchdowns over the past three weeks. They also allowed two big games to Andre Ellington (162 yards from scrimmage) and Marshawn Lynch (161 YFS) during that stretch.
