Free agent running back Chris Johnson was shot Saturday night while riding in a car in Orlando.

The 29-year-old Johnson spent last season with the New York Jets, recording 155 carries for 663 yards and a touchdown. The six seasons before that, Johnson played for the Tennessee Titans, who drafted him in the first round of the 2008 Draft. He tallied 1,742 carries for 7,965 yards with 50 touchdowns for the Titans, and was a three-time Pro Bowl selection and was a First-Team All-Pro selection in 2009. He ran for 2,006 yards on 358 carries in that 2009 season, leading the league in both categories.
