Tomlinson wins FedEx Ground honors, again

For the fourth time in nine weeks, San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson took home FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week honors.

LaDainian Tomlinson has now won the award four times in the past seven weeks. No other running back has won the award more than once.

Tomlinson ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in the Chargers' 31-26 victory over the New York Jets. He scored on touchdown runs of one, one and four yards and also scored on a 25-yard reception.

Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for the local community. Along with the player awards, FedEx is awarding Children's Hospital of Cincinnati and Children's Hospital Foundation, the children's hospital in each winning market, a check for $5,000.

The children's hospitals in the two season-long winner's markets, announced at this year's Super Bowl, will be awarded $25,000 each. That means that FedEx will deliver nearly $250,000 to local children's hospitals around the country in recognition of the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award winners.
