Minnesota signed Brooks-James to its practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old running back was recently let go by the Steelers. In three appearances with Pittsburgh this season, Brooks-James rushed eight times for seven yards, not exactly a threatening stat line to the likes of Dalvin Cook.

Tony Brooks-James: Joins Pittsburgh's practice squad

Brooks-James signed with the Steelers' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Oregon will join the Steelers ahead of their bye week. With James Conner dealing with a quadriceps injury and Jaylen Samuels (knee) out for a few more weeks, Brooks-James will learn the system and remain on standby in case of further injuries.

Tony Brooks-James: Lands on Bucs' practice squad

Brooks-James signed with Tampa Bay's practice squad Monday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneer's official site reports.

Analysis: Brooks-James originally signed with Atlanta in May as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon, but he wasn't able to stick to their 53-man roster. The 23-year-old exploded in the Falcons' preseason finale, rushing 15 times for 137 yards and two touchdowns, including a 52-yard score.

Tony Brooks-James: Explodes in preseason finale

Brooks-James ran for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries during Thursday's 31-12 preseason win against the Jaguars.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Oregon more than tripled his rushing output from his first four exhibition outings, ripping off multiple explosive gains against the second and third-string units of Jacksonville. Brooks-James started slow with three yards on his first two carries, but gained at least eight yards on seven of his remaining 13 attempts -- including touchdown scampers from 14 and 52 yards out. He was not widely expected to make the 53-man roster coming into the matchup against Jacksonville, but very likely cemented a practice squad spot for himself with Thursday night's performance.
