The all-purpose yards is the sum of the rushing, receiving, and fumble return yards. $12243+5611-6=17648$ The sum we calculated above is not the same as the sum of the absolute values of the three categories. $|12243|+|5611|+|-6|=17654$ The -6 fumble return yards are added to the all-purpose yards when summing the absolute values.
