MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adrian Peterson has become the third-fastest player in NFL history to reach 10,000 yards rushing for his career.

Peterson passed the mark for Minnesota in the fourth quarter Sunday against Chicago in his 101st career game. Eric Dickerson got there in 91 games, and Jim Brown reached the milestone in 98 games.

Peterson entered the afternoon needing 154 yards to reach 10,000.

Peterson also passed the 1,000-yard mark for the sixth time in his seven seasons with the Vikings. He fell 30 yards short in 2011, when injuries limited him to 12 games.
