According to FoxSports.com's Adam Caplan, New England has reportedly promoted runningback Javarris James to the active roster.  James apparently replaced the recently departed Laurence Maroney, who was traded to Denver yesterday.

The former Miami star will reportedly be activated to the 53-man roster, which will allow him to join Kevin Faulk, Fred Taylor, Sammy Morris, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis as the team's 5th runningback.

James is 6'1", 215-pounds, and had 103 carries for 492-yards with 6 touchdowns, while also catching 13 passes for 85 yards at the University of Miami. He finished his collegiate career with 505 carries for 2,162 yards and 18 touchdons.

He originally signed with the Colts before being waved and has since been on the practice squad here in New England.

In the meantime here's a highlight video of a 62-yard touchdown run he had against North Carolina:
