Chiefs head coach Andy Reid suspends Marcus Peters for incident at Jets game

Kansas City Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters for game against Raiders

"This is something Marcus and I discussed", Reid said, according to The Kansas City Star.

Peters played all 82 defensive snaps in the Chiefs Week 7 loss to the Raiders at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, totaling two tackles, and providing his usual, tight coverage all evening. Head coach Andy Reid announced on Wednesday afternoon that Peters would be suspended after the most recent incident, but everything else would remain, "In-house". 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.

Reid did not respond to inquiries regarding the development, as the Chiefs enter Sunday having lost five of six games after a 5-0 start.


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

Without Peters, the Chiefs may not have a choice about giving Darrelle Revis extended playing time against Oakland. Peters will also be spending the week thinking about his action as he will not be allowed to practice.

Following the game, Reid said: "That's why he left the field". Late in the game, Steve Nelson was penalized for holding, a call Peters obviously took opposition to. Peters had been flagged for unsportsman-like conduct but was not ejected.
