Marcus Peters' suspension partly due to argument with coach

Specifically, both cornerback Marcus Peters and safety Daniel Sorensen will find their paychecks just a bit lighter after being fined by the National Football League for throwing a flag and roughing the passer, respectively.

Reports that have come out since the incident show that Peters was suspended for multiple incidents that day.

Peters, a two-time Pro Bowler, was fined $24,309 for the toss and admitted to NFL Network's Michael Robinson he behaved poorly later in the 38-31 loss.

"I think the loss of Eric Berry has done some damage to Marcus Peters on a personal note, just not being able to have that guy like an Ike Taylor in that locker room to be able to lean on when you're going through something". He wasn't wearing socks when he returned.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Peters also got into a verbal spat with a coach on the way to the airport after the game, which along with the flag tossing, played a role in the suspension.

The argument is not enough to be suspended either, and when Peters went to the locker room he may have honestly thought that he was ejected.

They still have a game on Sunday that could determine whether or not they make the playoffs this season.

Peters will sit this weekend, but Sorensen will be an important member of the secondary this week as the Chiefs try to get their first win since late October and put some distance between them and the Oakland Raiders in the race for the AFC West.
