Falcons defensive tackle Corey Peters was placed on the non-football injury list after hurting his foot during the offseason, and that cost him nearly $100,000.

Although neither Peters nor the Falcons have said how Peters hurt his foot, Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com writes that the Falcons weren’t happy with whatever Peters did, and as a result they chose not to pay him his full salary during his seven weeks on the non-football injury list.

The Falcons continued to pay Peters during those seven weeks, but they paid him at a rate as if he were making $303,000 in base salary. He actually makes $540,000 in base salary. So he was paid $17,824 a week for those seven weeks, whereas his normal base salary would earn him $31,765 a week. That means he lost $13,941 a week for seven weeks, or a total of $97,587.

NFL teams don’t have to pay players while they’re missing time for non-football injuries, although many teams choose to keep paying players, especially if they suffered their injuries working out on their own or otherwise trying to stay in shape during the offseason. There’s still no word on how Peters got hurt, but now that he’s back on the 53-man roster he’s back to making his normal salary.

A tweet by D-Led said he hurt the foot running.

What did they do with Rod Coleman back in the day? Didn't he hurt himself on a jet ski?

Coleman sat out the first 5 games of the season back in '07, the year where he got into the jet ski accident during the spring and tore his quad.

But Coleman did return from the quad injury in about 4 months (late April to late August he was out), but he injured his knee and had surgery on that which sat him for the first 5 games of the 2007 season. He came back, played 3 lackluster games, then had 2 sacks vs. Carolina, then went down for the year the following week vs. TB with arm/hand injuries.

The fact that Coleman had returned to practice in 4 months from the quad injury is what prevented him from going on the NFI list, where his knee injury would not have qualified him for that, just the PUP. But they seemingly didn't put him on the PUP because they expected him to miss a month with the knee injury, as opposed to the 6+ weeks that PUP requires.

Coleman's situation was much more akin to Michael Jenkins injury situation in 2010 as opposed to Peters' this year.
