Reid sus­pends cor­ner­back Peters

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

Coach Andy Reid an­nounced Wed­nes­day that cor­ner­back Mar­cus Peters will miss the Chiefs’ game against the Oakland Raiders on Sun­day af­ter­noon due to his ac­tions in the Chiefs’ 38-31 loss to the New York Jets last Sun­day.

Peters’ sus­pen­sion means he will not prac­tice with the team this week, and will also lose a week’s pay.

“I’ve done a lot of think­ing, and I’ve come to the con­clu­sion I’m go­ing to sus­pend him for this game,” Reid said. “He’ll be back the fol­low­ing week.”

Late in the fourth quar­ter of the Chiefs’ loss to the Jets, the Chiefs ap­peared to stop a two-point con­ver­sion that would have kept the Chiefs down just five points. But when fel­low cor­ner­back Steven Nel­son was whis­tled for defensive hold­ing, Peters — who was vis­i­bly frus­trated through­out the course of the game — picked up the flag and chucked it into the stands, draw­ing an­other penalty.
