Peters (lower leg) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Peters suffered a serious looking leg injury during the first quarter of Sunday's game and was carted to the locker room. Troy Hill will step in as the Rams' starting left cornerback to conclude Week 3's contest. Expect an update on Peters' health after the game.
Peters exited Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a leg injury, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Peters left the field with the assistance of trainers during the second quarter. The star cornerback avoided placing any weight on his right leg and will be examined by the team's medical staff. If Peters is unable to return to the field, expect an update on his health after Sunday's game.
Peters recorded three tackles (one solo) and returned an interception for a touchdown in Monday's win over the Raiders. Peters picked off Derek Carr late in the fourth quarter, taking it to the house and officially putting to rest any chance of a Raiders' comeback. He'll now turn his focus to Sunday's matchup with Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals.
Peters made four tackles (all solo) and intercepted a pass during Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Titans. He finished the 2017 regular season having racked up five interceptions, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 46 tackles (42 solo). It's unsurprising that Peters' regular-season numbers dipped slightly this season with teams continuing to look the opposite direction. Still, the ball-hawking corner has picked off a total of 19 passes in his first three seasons in the league, and his 2017 campaign was shortened two games, one by suspension and one for rest in Week 17. He remains on his rookie deal with the Chiefs through next season and has a club option north of $9 million available in 2019, but it wouldn't be surprising if Kansas City extends the star cornerback before then.
Peters is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos in order to rest, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Peters has been a lock down corner for the Chiefs all season, so the added rest will help ensure he's at full strength for the divisional playoff matchup. Terrance Mitchell will likely see an increase in defensive snaps Sunday.
