Johnson sets single-season scrimmage yards record

While he may or may not eclipse the 2,000-yard mark in rushing this season, Titans RB Chris Johnson now has more yards from scrimmage in a single season than any player in NFL history. Johnson’s name is in the record books.

Johnson entered the game with 2,355 yards from scrimmage, 70 yards short of Marshall Faulk’s single-season record of 2,429 set in 1999. With a 9-yard reception midway through the second quarter, Johnson now has 78 total yards in the game.

He’s rushed 16 times for 59 yards (including an 6-yard touchdown) and has two receptions for 19 yards.

At this point, he still needs 59 yards rushing to become the sixth player to reach 2,000 yards and 165 to break Eric Dickerson’s single-season record of 2,105.
