More from Johnson’s milestone arrives

11/28/2012

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson made history in Week 7 when he scored on an 83-yard touchdown run in a 35-34 win over the Buffalo Bills. In doing so, he became the first player in NFL history to have four rushing touchdowns of 80-plus yards in a career.

Days after his milestone run, the team sent Johnson’s shoes to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On Wednesday, his jersey from the record-setting day arrived in Canton courtesy of the National Football League. Johnson's artifacts will be placed on exhibit in the Hall's Pro Football Today Gallery.

The jersey was originally earmarked by the league to go to NFL Auction but after further consideration the league decided the piece of memorabilia should be added to the Hall of Fame’s collection. The NFL placed memorabilia from games played in October on its NFL Auction site to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

UPDATED: Johnson extended his record to six TDs of 80-plus yards when he scored on an 80-yard run against the Chicago Bears in Week 9 and a team-record 94-yard touchdown run against the New York Jets in Week 15.
