Jackson reached the milestone in 48 games, surpassing former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, who took 61 games reach the 3,000-yard mark.

Throughout Jackson’s young career, he has made a name for himself with his speed. Jackson, who has led the Ravens in rushing each of the past two seasons, ran for 1,005 yards on 159 carries in 2020 and 1,206 yards on 176 carries in 2019, when he won NFL Most Valuable Player honors.
Jackson recorded 12 carries for 86 yards in the season-opening overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
