Dunn joins short list of backs with 10,000 yards, 500 receptions

ATLANTA -- Tampa Bay running back Warrick Dunn became the sixth player in NFL history with 10,000 career yards rushing and 500 receptions in a game Sunday against his former Atlanta team.

Dunn, who spent the first five years of his career with the Buccaneers and the last six with the Falcons, caught a 9-yard pass from quarterback Brian Griese to get his 500th catch.

San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson is the only other active player with 10,000 yards rushing and 500 catches. Marcus Allen and Emmitt Smith are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tiki Barber and Marshall Faulk are retired.
