I AM ATHLETE | Season 3: Episode 24

Former NFL running back Chris Johnson joins "I AM ATHLETE" with Brandon Marshall, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson and Omar Kelly. Chris opens up about embracing his culture while in the NFL, his historic 2000+ yard season and the drive-by shooting that nearly ended his career in 2015.

Chris walks us through the moments leading up to the drive-by shooting that left he and a friend wounded and another dead. After the shooting Chris experienced nerve issues in his hand and struggled with effective rehab solutions. Because of this he feared his injury would lead to the end of his career but ultimately he got the care he needed to recover and continue his NFL career.
