Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters for 1 game

Share

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has suspended cornerback Marcus Peters for Sunday's home game against Oakland. Assuming he would be ejected, he pranced off to the locker room as the game raged on.

He did not say whether that suspension was for throwing the flag into the stands, or walking off of the field, or both.

Fox 4's Jason Lamb, who was at Wednesday's news conference, said Reid wouldn't share many details surrounding the decision to suspend Peters. Peters then came back onto the field not wearing any socks. "I'm going to leave it at that". Without their top corner, the Chiefs' defense represents a plus matchup for the Raiders' passing game this week.

Kansas City ranks 28th in pass defense (252.8 yards allowed per game).

Peters was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after he hurled an official's penalty flag into the stands following a defensive holding call on teammate Steven Nelson during a Jets two-point conversion attempt in the fourth quarter.

After a 5-1 start to the season, the Chiefs have lost 6-of-their-last-7 and have fallen into a tie for first place in the AFC West with the San Diego Chargers.
