RB Johnson eclipses 2,000 Yards

Posted on: January 4, 2010

Tennessee Titans’ running back Chris Johnson became just the sixth player in NFL history to reach the 2,000 rushing yard plateau. Johnson had 134 yards on 36 carries for the Titans in their season-ending win vs. the Seahawks. Johnson could have had a shot to break Eric Dickerson’s all-time rushing record in a season, which is 2,105, had he not had a holding penalty that negated a big run in the 4th quarter. Johnson finished with 2,006 yards on the season, good for fifth all-time. Johnson said after the game he was “very disappointed” not to break the all-time record. However, did break the yards from scrimmage record, previously held by Marshall Faulk.
