New York Giants coach Joe Judge has indicated that some sort of punishment will come to rookie Kadarius Toney after punching a Dallas Cowboys defenseman on Sunday.
Judge, who preaches about having a disciplined team, saw his team register 31 penalties for 255 yards as well as 11 penalties on the first down. Frustration seemed to boil over when Toney threw a punch at Damontae Kazee after a late-game skirmish.

“There’s a pretty distinct line in terms of competing and doing the things that we’re not going to tolerate as a team that got us behind. It’s not going to be accepted. It’s not going to be tolerated. C ‘It’s as far as I am Obviously that took him out of the game and I’m going to leave it there for now, ”Judge said.
The judge added that he had not spoken to Toney at the time and that he was going to let the league handle any kind of suspension.
“I think every rookie has a lot of maturing to do. You specifically ask about an incident, I’m going to talk about it with the squad. I’m also going to bring it up with the players individually, make sure we’re on the same wavelength. There shouldn’t be any confusion at all. I’ll stop there, “he added.
Toney was surrounded by Cowboys defensemen after catching a pass from Mike Glennon. He got a first try and was overrun by the Dallas defense. Kazee approached at the end of the game and threw Toney to the ground. Evan Engram barged in and pushed Kazee away.

Toney then fired back and punched Kazee in the helmet.
The wide receiver was disqualified from the game and had the judge’s ears as he made his way to the locker room.
Toney was the best healthy wide receiver the Giants had left. Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard missed the game, while Kenny Golladay was ruled out during the game with a knee injury. Glennon was playing because Daniel Jones had a head injury, while Saquon Barkley had an ankle injury.
Toney finished the game with 10 catches for 189 yards, by far the best game of his short career.
Toney had appeared to be in the doghouse with the Giants’ coaches earlier in the season. After the game in Washington, he posted an encrypted message on Instagram saying he was upset about something. He was seen on the sidelines of the third quarter of this match chatting with the judge.
NJ.com intercepted the message before it was deleted.
“I’m not mad, damn it, just be lame with me”, Toney wrote before deleting it.
