Marcus Peters Suspended For Week 14 Matchup Against Oakland Raiders

Share

Peters, apparently unhappy with the call, grabbed the penalty flag from the ground and threw it into the stands. Peters will not be paid his standard game check and will not be allowed to practice either.

Thinking he had been disqualified from the game after being penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, Peters retreated to the locker room before the end of Sunday's 38-31 loss to the New York Jets.

"This is something Marcus and I discussed", Reid said, according to The Kansas City Star. He later returned, but obviously, his behavior irked the Chiefs. The ensuing skirmish featured a unusual turn of events when Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch ran in from the sidelines to "defend Peters".

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. Reid announced that Peters has been suspended for this Sunday's game against the Raiders. Both teams are 6-6, and the Chiefs have dropped six of their last seven after starting 5-0. They find themselves in a thick AFC West race now with the Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers and have to beat the Raiders to avoid falling below.500 and slipping out of first place in the division.

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