Tennessee Titans free safety Michael Griffin was among the team’s inactives today against the St. Louis Rams.

According to Pro Football Talk, this marks the end of a streak of 103 consecutive regular-season games played by Griffin.

Since being selected in the first round of the 2007 draft, Griffin has played every regular-season and postseason game for the Titans until today. Griffin has even appeared in all but two preseason games. He has played in 97.8 percent of NFL games in which he was on the roster, including two Pro Bowl appearances in 2008 and 2010.

With Griffin’s streak over, Detroit Lions safety John Wendling leads all safeties in consecutive regular-season games played with 102. Yeremiah Bell of the Arizona Cardinals is next with 88, followed by Indianapolis Colts safety Antione Bethea with 87.
