NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee running back Chris Johnson has reached another career milestone in an otherwise bleak losing season for the Titans.

Johnson has become just the eighth player in NFL history to run for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first five seasons, topping the plateau in Sunday's loss to Indianapolis.

Johnson said Tuesday it's real special to be among elite company, joining Barry Sanders, Curtis Martin, Eric Dickerson, Tony Dorsett, Corey Dillon, Eddie George and LaDanian Tomlinson.

The Titans running back thanks God for being able to stay healthy for all of the seasons he's been in the NFL and for being able to go over 1,000 yards each of those years.

Tennessee (4-9) hosts the New York Jets (6-7) on Monday night.
