Dolphins Williams Sets NFL Record

By  | 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Miami running back Ricky Williams reached 1,000 yards rushing for this season on his fifth carry Sunday against Tennessee, setting an NFL record for the longest span between 1,000-yard seasons at six years.

Williams' last 1,000-yard season came in 2003. He got to 1,000 yards on a 15-yard carry. This marks the fifth 1,000-yard rushing season of his career.

He also became only the seventh running back in NFL history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season in which he was 32 or older at the start of the season.
