Marcus Peters impresses right off the bat at Chiefs practice

BY foxsports • June 17, 2015

Marcus Peters missed 10 practices waiting for his classes at Washington to end. And Chiefs coaches weren't going to hand him the equivalent of an 11th.

The first-round cornerback had no grace period in his return. Peters was thrown right into the practice rotation on Tuesday, and according to ESPN, he handled himself well.

According to Chiefs blogger Adam Teicher, Peters locked down Junior Hemingway on a post pattern. Then, he broke on a ball intended for fellow rookie Chris Conley and knocked it away.

The former Huskie might've benefitted by keeping his nose to the grindstone back at school.

“I kept in touch, but they were dealing with (offseason practice) and stuff so it wasn’t a lot," Peters said. “I took all the information I had when I was here and just kept studying."

It showed on Tuesday. Peters didn't look like a rookie, let alone one who hasn't seen the practice field in months.
