The Kansas City Chiefs are taking discipline into their own hands. Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday that the team has suspended cornerback Marcus Peters for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders for his actions during Kansas City's loss to the New York Jets last Sunday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per sources, that the Chiefs are banning Peters without pay because he left the field of play while the game was on. In the waning moments of the defeat, Peters threw a penalty flag into the stands after teammate Steven Nelson was called for defensive holding on a two-point conversion attempt. Peters was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, and assuming he would be ejected, walked to the locker room as the game continued. When told he wasn't ejected, Peters returned to the field, without socks, but did not return to the game.
