SAN DIEGO (AP) -LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers became the 23rd player in NFL history rush for 10,000 yards, reaching the milestone on a 36-yard run down the left sideline in the third quarter against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Tomlinson reached the milestone three days after Warrick Dunn of the Atlanta Falcons did it.
Tomlinson became the third player this month to join the exclusive club. Jacksonville's Fred Taylor made it to 10,000 yards on Nov. 11 against the Tennessee Titans.
L.T. came out of the game after the run, and the milestone was acknowledged on the video screen. Fans started chanting ``L.T.! L.T.'' and the running back, in his seventh season, pointed to the crowd and bowed.
Tomlinson was the NFL's MVP last year after setting records with 31 touchdowns and 186 points.
