Williams hits 1,000 yards for fifth time
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- 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.
