Andy Reid suspends Marcus Peters

December 8, 2017 GMT

Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid has suspended Cornerback Marcus Peters.

Peters will not suit up against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

On Monday, Reid addressed Peters, who after tossing an official’s penalty flag in the stands walked off the field, believing he was disqualified.

“I always talk to the person first,” Reid said Monday. “That’s where I sit right now. I haven’t made any decisions yet. That was the wrong thing to do.”

Peters was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for his action after a Jets’ two-point conversion attempt with 2:15 remaining. The Chiefs stopped the play but cornerback Steven Nelson was flagged for holding. Peters picked up the flag and threw it into the stands. He left the field and headed toward the locker room.
