Chiefs suspend CB Peters for one game for antics vs. Jets

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without cornerback Marcus Peters when they host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

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. Peters was also penalized and then left the playing field, escorted by a Chiefs security officer. He later returned to the Chiefs sideline - without his socks - before the Jets sealed the 38-31 win.

Following the game, Reid said: "That's why he left the field. That's why he came back out". "That was the wrong thing for him to do".

After Reid announced he was mulling over punishment for Peters, the point was delivered clearly on Wednesday incidental behavior would no longer be tolerated. What changed or led Reid to this decision is not clear, but it is obvious that the Chiefs have an identity problem - especially on defense. Darrelle Revis, who was signed last week off the street, started Sunday and was made a captain against his former Jets team but was benched in the second half.

Thinking he had been ejected for the stunt, Peters headed to the locker room but in reality hadn't been tossed.

The Chiefs have lost six of their last seven games after getting off to a 5-0 start, so Peters is nearly certainly not the only player who is frustrated.
