Browns' Lewis passes 10,000-yard mark in third quarter against Bengals
CLEVELAND -- Browns running back Jamal Lewis became the 24th player in NFL history to rush for 10,000 career yards in Cleveland's game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
Lewis came in needing 63 yards and went over the milestone on an 8-yard burst up the middle in the third quarter.
The 29-year-old played seven seasons with Baltimore, where he gained 7,801 yards before signing as a free agent with the Browns in 2007. He gained 1,304 yards last season, his best since 2003, when he rushed for 2,066 for the Ravens.
