“I’m not worried about him,” Peters said of Allen. “I’m worried about the Chiefs getting to the Super Bowl. We’re going to the playoffs, baby.”

Peters said he doesn’t know what prompted Allen’s tirade.

“I don’t know either, bro,” Peters said. “It don’t even matter. Let him get healthy, man. I’m praying for a speedy recovery. We need him back on the field. The fans miss him.”

Allen played just a half game for the Chargers this season. He sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament at Arrowhead Stadium in the season opener.

The Chargers wideout blitzed the Chiefs, and primarily Peters, for 63 yards on six catches before leaving the game. Allen currently sits on the team’s injured reserve list.

But that didn’t stop the veteran unleashing his taunts seemingly directed towards Peters on Twitter.


Peters said he didn’t where Allen’s perceived beef with him originated.

“So I don’t know if it’s nothing though,” Peters said. “You all can ask him.”

But the Chiefs cornerback said he didn’t have an issues with Allen’s trash talk.

“It’s all good for me,” Peters said. “It’s football, it’s football. I ain’t tripping on that (crap). You talk (crap), you have fun, you get beat sometimes.”

“He knows how to get in contact with me if we have a problem or anything,” Peters said.
