Conner's 454 running yards rank his 19th place in the NFL But his 10 rushing touchdowns put him tied for first in the league alongside Titans All-Pro Derrick Henry. Conner will be able to be the sole holder of first place in the league with Henry out because of foot surgery.
Bo Jackson, a former NFL running back with the Los Angeles Raiders and Major League outfielder Bo Jackson is the sole player who has been named as a Pro Bowler in football as well as an All-Star for baseball. That's why, in 1990 American toy manufacturer Tiger Electronics released a handheld game allowing users to play alongside Jackson on both soccer and baseball fields. The next season, Nintendo introduced Bo Jackson's Hit and Run for Game Boy and Bo Jackson Baseball for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The trio of games wouldn't be possible without the virtual celebrity status achieved by him in 1989's Tecmo Bowl, the first console game to be granted an official license by the NFL to display players' name, image and similarity. Today, Jackson in Tecmo Bowl and 1991's Tecmo Super Bowl is considered as one of the most iconic video game avatars. The same is true for Michael Vick from Madden NFL 2004.
Madden was released for the first time by Microsoft PC in 1988 during Jackson's sophomore season in the NFL. However, due to licensing issues as well as a hip injury that occurred during his 1990 NFL season, which forced him to take an premature retirement from football, Jackson never played Madden during his playing years. It wasn't until 2014 that Jackson became a part of the Madden debut as a special-edition participant in The Ultimate Team game mode.
In a press release on Wednesday afternoon, EA Sports announced that not only will Jackson return to the field in the very first game ever since Madden NFL 15 in 1987, but Jackson will also be given the privilege of being a Madden cover player. In the next 35 years, nearly 35 years since his NFL career started in 1987, Jackson will grace a special digital cover of Madden NFL 22. Beginning on Friday, players will once again be allowed to play the game in virtual reality. EA Sports also teamed up with Nike to revive the famous sportswear brand's Bo Knows ad campaign by using a digitally rendered image of his signature footwear that is, The Nike Air Bo Turf which is incorporated into the game.
