Ameer Abdullah scores 24-yard touchdown on first NFL carry

Ameer Abdullah has kicked off his NFL career in explosive fashion. On his very first regular-season touch, the Detroit Lions rookie running back took a handoff 24 yards through the heart of the San Diego Chargers’ defense for a touchdown.

The NFL shared a video of Abdullah’s score on its official Twitter account.

Abdullah, who was a second-round pick out of Nebraska in this year’s draft, has some serious potential as a professional. His speed, quickness and vision make him a young player to watch as this season progresses.
