NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin practiced on a limited basis Friday after missing two days with a right quadriceps injury as he tries to avoid sitting out a game for the first time in his NFL career.
Griffin is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the St. Louis Rams. Griffin has played every game for the Titans since getting selected in the first round of the 2007 draft. Griffin's streak includes 103 regular-season games and two playoff contests.
Griffin's injury occurred in a 31-17 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 20.
"It is getting there," Griffin said. "Would I say I'm 100 percent? No, but I think I am two or three weeks past the timetable. We'll see where it goes from there."
Following a subpar season in 2012, Griffin has excelled this year in a ball-hawking role. Tennessee ranks seventh in the league in pass defense, allowing 219.9 yards per game.
If Griffin is unable to play, the Titans likely would start Bernard Pollard and George Wilson at safety. The two safeties are considered interchangeable, as both have the ability to play close to the line of scrimmage and in deep coverage.
