Chiefs CB Marcus Peters suspended for Sunday's game after Jets incident

Against the Jets, Peters let his frustration boil over, picking up a referee's flag and launched it into the crowd.

"This is something Marcus and I discussed", Reid said, according to The Kansas City Star. However, Peters has had tumultuous play, backed by one of the NFL's worst defenses.

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. Ought to be noted, the details around the situation are muddy. He later returned, but obviously, his behavior irked the Chiefs. Albeit, this is a pattern he has oft followed. Peters was also penalized and then left the playing field, escorted by a Chiefs security officer.

Peters, who played his college football at the University of Washington, was originally selected by Kansas City in the first round (18th pick overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Without Peters, the Chiefs may not have a choice about giving Darrelle Revis extended playing time against Oakland.

Robbie posed on the red carpet with her real-life counterpart, laughing and smiling as photographers snapped away. She revealed: "So I have learned not to judge so quickly".


Following the game, Reid said: "That's why he left the field".

Thinking he had been ejected for the stunt, Peters headed to the locker room but in reality hadn't been tossed.

Reid slept on it and made his decision known on Wednesday that Peters would miss the Raiders game.

Raiders Week is always a big deal for the Chiefs, but this Sunday's game carries a bit more importance than usual.
