Harrison passes Fryar for career yards

INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 22, 2006) -- Colts receiver Marvin Harrison and two-time MVP Peyton Manning continued moving up their respective career lists against Washington.

Harrison passed Irving Fryar for eighth on the NFL's yards receiving list, while Manning cracked the top 10 in touchdown passes.

Harrison passed Fryar with his second catch of the day -- a 9-yard reception with 12:25 left in the second quarter. That gave him 12,786 yards, one more than Fryar.

Next up for Harrison is Steve Largent, who has 13,089 yards.

Harrison, fourth all-time in catches (959), also tied the Colts' franchise record with 113 touchdowns when he caught his second TD pass -- a 1-yarder -- with 2:46 left in the third quarter. He's tied with Lenny Moore for ninth in NFL history.

Manning, who threw one TD pass in the first half, opened the second half with three more -- two to Harrison and another to Reggie Wayne. The nine-year veteran now has 256 career TD passes, passing Dan Fouts (254) and Sonny Jurgensen (255) for 10th all-time.

Manning also passed Jim Hart for 14th on the career yardage list. He entered the game with 34,467 yards. Hart had 34,665.
