Johnson Sixth to Rush for 2,000 Yards




Chris Johnson became the sixth player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. 
SEATTLE --** Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans has become the sixth player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season.

The second-year running back ran right, cut back inside and jumped over a teammate for a 4-yard gain early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Seattle.

Game officials tossed the ball to the Titans' sideline as Johnson joined Eric Dickerson, Jamal Lewis, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis and O.J. Simpson in the 2,000-yard club.

Otherwise, there was little acknowledgment of Johnson's second major milestone of the day, which came on his 32nd carry and while Seattle's Colin Cole was helped off with an injury. Moments earlier, a holding penalty negated what would have been a far flashier way for Johnson to reach the milestone -- a 62-yard touchdown romp.

In the second quarter, Johnson set the NFL record for yards from scrimmage in a season on a 9-yard pass from Vince Young. That broke Marshall Faulk's 1999 record and gave Johnson 2,254 yards from scrimmage.
