Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters for Sunday's game against the Raiders

Share

Earlier this week, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that the team was evaluating possible discipline for cornerback Marcus Peters after Peters left the field early during last Sunday's loss to the Jets. The culmination of events came the first time the Chiefs played the Raiders when Peters landed an unnecessary hit on quarterback Derek Carr. The frustration from the rise to a 5-0 start, and the fall to 6-6, has resulted in several meltdowns throughout the season. He later returned, but obviously, his behavior irked the Chiefs.

When the Raiders and Chiefs played on October 19 in Oakland, Peters drew the ire of Raiders offensive lineman for his hit on quarterback Derek Carr, a play in which he was called for unnecessary roughness.

Following the game, Reid said: "That's why he left the field".

Reid slept on it and made his decision known on Wednesday that Peters would miss the Raiders game. Peters will also be spending the week thinking about his action as he will not be allowed to practice.

According to a report from the Washington Post, Peters threw a referee's flag into the crowd after a holding penalty was called on a teammate.

The Chiefs might have to lean on Steven Nelson (who was flagged for the penalty that incensed Peters), Terrance Mitchell, Revis, Phillip Gaines and Kenneth Acker at corner against the Raiders, who get back wide receiver Michael Crabtree from suspension for this Week 14 game.
