Chiefs corner Marcus Peters suspended vs. Raiders, Andy Reid announces

Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has announced cornerback Marcus Peters has been suspended for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.

According to the NFL Network Insider, the Chiefs have suspended Peters without pay because he left the field of play while the game was still going on.

Peters received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty following a defensive holding call against teammate Steven Nelson during an unsuccessful two-point conversion try by the Jets. 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. The two teams meet again this week, with Peters on the sideline.

The McClymonds High product then returned to the field.

After Reid announced he was mulling over punishment for Peters, the point was delivered clearly on Wednesday incidental behavior would no longer be tolerated.

Reid said he has spoken to Peters about the suspension and will not discuss particulars. "That's why he came back out". 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.

Peters did not appear in the team's locker room following the game. The frustration from the rise to a 5-0 start, and the fall to 6-6, has resulted in several meltdowns throughout the season.

The Chiefs are tied with the Raiders and Chargers atop the AFC West with four games to play, so the victor of Sunday's contest will have a leg up for the division crown.
