San Francisco 49ers running back LaMichael James, inactive for the team's first three games this season before seeing action in Week 4 against the St. Louis Rams, took to Twitter to express frustration over his lack of playing time.

James quickly deleted the tweet, but it lives on in this screengrab:


James, 23, was a second-round pick in 2012 and helped the 49ers down the stretch and in the playoffs his rookie season by filling in for injured backup running back Kendall Hunter. Last Thursday against the Rams, James totaled zero yards on three carries.
