Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters against Raiders

Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters against Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without their best coverage corner on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders as Head Coach Andy Reid has suspended Marcus Peters one game.

Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson was called for defensive holding while the Jets were attempting a two-point conversion after scoring a touchdown. Reid said he wouldn't go into details.but the suspension stems from the incident where Marcus Peters threw the refs flag into the stadium crowd, last Sunday.

Peters was then flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, and made a decision to head to Kansas City's locker room despite the fact that he had not been ejected from the game.

Peters returned to the sideline, but when he came back he was not wearing socks underneath his cleats.

Reid also has given strong vocal support to quarterback Alex Smith, but the same team sources say Smith will be on a shorter leash based upon his performance against the Jets. "That's why he came back out". I don't know what was said to him or not said to him. Sunday's penalty marked his third unsportsmanlike conduct foul of the season and fourth of his career.

When asked by reporters whether or not the Chiefs would continue with this same arrangement, Reid was non-committal on the future, saying the team would evaluate as they go, like everything else they do.

However, the questionable behavior continued on the gridiron with Peters obvious lack of will to tackle during the game. Still, in spite of their slide, the Chiefs remain tied for first place in the AFC West with the Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers.
