Andy Reid issues one-game suspension to CB Marcus Peters

Kansas City Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters for game against Raiders

The Chiefs suspended cornerback Marcus Peters as a result of his freakish behavior late in Sunday's loss to the Jets, when he threw a flag in to the stands, presumed he'd been ejected, left the playing area, and then returned in full uniform - but without socks.

According to multiple sources, the Chiefs have suspended Peters for one game because of his actions during the team's 38-31 loss to the New York Jets in Week 13. Teammate Steven Nelson earned a penalty for defensive holding on an unsuccessful two-point conversion try by the Jets.

Thinking he had been ejected for the stunt, Peters headed to the locker room but in reality hadn't been tossed. Alex Smith threw for just 181 yards in that loss, while a ground game that was churning out 100-yard performances early in the season was held to 55.

"Obviously anytime a player goes down whether it's an injury, whether it's something like this, you treat it the same and I'm sure they will", Del Rio said.

Reid said after the game Peters thought officials disqualified him for the incident.

Vols go with the unknown by hiring Jeremy Pruitt
The story began to pick up steam when Tennessee appeared to have hired Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano . In 2007, Pruitt joined Nick Saban's inaugural staff at Alabama under the title director of player personnel.

Peters, an All-Pro last season, will return the following week against the Chargers. It just depends how they roll the coverages and do those kind of things.

"Nobody likes to lose and when you have a lost a few in a row sometimes amusing things happen", Smith said. The school dismissed Peters later in the season for disciplinary issues. "Coach made the decision though and we're going to to go with it. Stakes are too big right now with what we've got in front of us, the opportunity in front of us". Since taking over as the team's Offensive Coordinator two weeks ago, Bill Musgrave has been unable to find a cure for whatever's plaguing his unit.

The episode on Sunday served as the latest breakdown in discipline for the All-Pro cornerback. "Guys stepping up and got to play their tails off". "That's the positive. That's how I feel, and you bank on that".

"I think we've got a good locker room, we've got a mature locker room", Smith said. We can't really change this late and really do much different than what we would do. When a piece goes down, you have to figure it out and work as a team.

Smith said he believe the team's leadership stands prepared to move on this week without Peters. I love "Crab" and I think a lot of people know that. "You anticipate it probably being a similar situation, coming down to the end of the game and who can make the play".
