Kansas City Chiefs Cornerback Marcus Peters will not be facing the Oakland Raiders this weekend after head coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday that Peters has been suspended for one game. 

According to the NFL Network Insider, the Chiefs have suspended Peters without pay because he left the field of play while the game was still going on. 

Peters was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and presumably believed he would be ejected and walked to the locker room before the game continued.
