Running back for the Tennessee Titans Chris Johnson wrote all 26 names of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on his shoes to pay them tribute during Monday night's game against the New York Jets.

Earlier that day, Johnson posted a photo of his cleats on Twitter titled "R.I.P. to all the victims," a quote that he also wrote on the shoes.


Johnson is not the first player to honor those who were killed at the Newtown shooting during a game.

New York Giant's wide receiver Victor Cruz dedicated Sunday's game to 6-year-old victim Jack Pinto after finding out he was Jack's favorite football player.

During last night's game, Johnson's "RIP SHES" cleats earned him a 94-yard TD run, the second largest one in the history of Monday Night Football.
