DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter says the challenge race between teammate Ted Ginn Jr. and NFL rushing leader Chris Johnson may yet take place.
Porter said the foot race was to be held at the Dolphins' training complex last Memorial Day weekend, but plans fell through. On Thursday, Porter said the race is under discussion again.
The Dolphins play Johnson and the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Johnson said the idea for the race came up at a pool party he and Ginn attended in Miami Beach. Johnson said they agreed to race that night on Ocean Drive, but Ginn failed to show.
Porter, who was also at the party, said the race instead was to be held the next morning on the Dolphins' field.
