Christopher Duan Johnson (born September 23, 1985) is an American football running back for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League. Johnson is widely regarded as one of the fastest players in the NFL and as a Pro Bowl starter in his first three seasons, he has established himself as one of the elite running backs in the league. Unheralded out of Orlando, Florida, Johnson emerged as a senior at East Carolina where he broke out for 2,960 all-purpose yards and 24 touchdowns. He was drafted by the Titans 24th overall in 2008, after running a record-tying 4.24 sec in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. In his second year of professional football, he won the NFL rushing title with 2,006 yards (only the sixth player ever to break 2,000), and broke Marshall Faulk's record of total yards from scrimmage with 2,509. He was named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year in 2009. Johnson played football at Olympia High School in Orlando. Johnson was also a track star at Olympia High. In his senior year, he finished second in the 100 metres at the 2004 Florida 4A state championships behind 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Walter Dix. In addition, Johnson also finished his senior season
