The Detroit star surpassed that milestone in the first half Thursday against the Chicago Bears. Torry Holt reached 10,000 yards in 116 games.

The 29-year-old Johnson faced questions this week about his pedestrian numbers this season, although he missed a month with an ankle injury.

Johnson had nine catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the first half Thursday.
