Being an Iron Man in the NFL is not easy. When you can go for multiple seasons without missing a game it is hard to do. The Seahawks Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has played in 106 consecutive games since the team draft him in the first round back in 2010 out of Texas. After suffering a hamstring injury last week, Thomas will sit out Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, breaking his streak.
Seahawks now listing Earl Thomas as out for Sunday’s game. Will break streak of 106 straight games played in regular season.
