LaMichael James says he’ll be back at practice Monday

49ers Texans Football AP

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh hasn’t banned his players from Twitter.  Yet.

As a result, rookie running back LaMichael James used the social-media outlet on Saturday night to let the world know that he’s fine after leaving Saturday night’s preseason game on a cart with an apparent foot injury.

“I will be 100% at practice Monday In full force believe that go 9ers thanks for all the support I love you guys!”

We love you, too, LaMichael.  Because you just made our job a little easier today.  (We’d love you even more if you used punctuation in your tweets.)

James, a second-round pick in April, could be a dangerous weapon for the 49ers this year.  With defenses focused on not getting pounded up the middle by Frank Gore and not getting burned on the outside by a quintet of No. 1 receivers, James could find plenty of openings if Harbaugh uses him creatively.

    After the cart incident this is great news.

    Because searching other news sites for stuff to regurgitate is difficult work to begin with.

    Still hoping for speedy come back for Jacobs. He will be a key contributor this year in spite of Gore and Hunter.

    Right. You shouldn’t have to correct their punctuation too.

    I followed LaMichael all thru college, and he was electrifying, but he seems a bit like a boy in a man’s game right now. Other than an occasional gimmick play, how will he find time with Gore and Hunter in the huddle? I just don’t see the 2nd rd pick here.

    I agree James can definitely pose matchup and speed problems but I think Harbaugh is the only person who believes they have a quintet of #1 receivers.

    James was awesome in college. He seems overwhelmed in the nfl right now. Needs more development, i think. Jacobs would be a bigger loss, currently.

    As long as he was down I thought they may be scheduling the amputations of that foot for today

    Love Lamichaels attitude!!! be back at practice Monday… That’s the type of teammate that’s needed.. He will end up being a great player.. Killed it at Oregon almost everytime he touched the ball.. He will be a stud in our offense for years to come.. Get back soon LJ

    Im starting to think that these college “burner” backs just dont have longevity in the NFL.

    Examples:

    Jahvid Best
    Steve Slaton

    Except LaMichael is twice the player of both of them. The problem is the smaller backs need to be in a spread type offense where they can get in space and use their natural talent.

    Examples:

    Darren Sproles
    LeSean McCoy

    When the ball gets thrown to you, you become the number one receiver.
