Yeah it's possible. With all the substitutions between plays, sometimes they just don't end up with the right people on the field. Getting 12 guys on and getting a penalty for it is more likely, but 10 happens. On defense the leader(usually middle linebacker) is supposed to count and make sure, and call a time out if they have one if they are missing anyone.

About 30 years ago Tony Dorsett had a 99 yard run in the pros that not only was the the longest run in history , until equaled a couple weeks ago, was actually done with only 10 guys on his offense.
