Joe Judge on Kadarius Toney’s ejection: That’s not going to be accepted

Rookie receiver Kadarius Toney entered Sunday with 10 catches for 92 yards. With Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton inactive with their injuries and Kenny Golladay leaving with a knee injury, Toney received his first big opportunity.

He caught 10 passes for 189 yards, setting the team rookie record for most receiving yards in a game. Odell Beckham held the previous mark with 185 yards in a game against the Eagles in 2014.

Toney, though, ruined it at the end of the fourth quarter with an ejection. He threw a punch at Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee.

Giants coach Joe Judge went onto the field to give Toney an earful on the receiver’s walk to the locker room.

“Look there’s a pretty distinct line in terms of competing and doing things that we’re not going to condone as a team that put us behind,” Judge said. “That’s not going to be accepted. That’s not going to be condoned. That’s as far as I’m going to go right now with that. Obviously, it resulted in him leaving the game, and I’m just going to leave it at that right there.”

The league will review the fracas to determine whether Toney’s punch merits a suspension, and Judge said he will “let the league handle that” when asked his concern level for being without Toney in Week 6.

Judge had not spoken to the first-round draft choice before his postgame news conference.

  1. Ok first off disclaimer I’m a Gator and he was always a guy you wanted to see in crunch time with the ball in flight his way. But, and I don’t live in the NY area so I haven’t been seeing the day to day with him but he’s gotten lost either in his head, or something off field no idea. But he’s a good player, or could be one if he gets “this” straightened out. So I hope NYG have a good vet or assistant who can help get him back to his old self.

  2. Just so talented, but tons of big red flags coming out of college. Buyer beware. Do you ignore the red flags and roll the dice? Some do, some don’t. The Giants did. You will be treated to some unbelievable play, but this kind of stuff will show up, too. You just hope it doesn’t cost you games. I don’t expect this to be a one time incident. It’s just a matter of how much they’ll put up with.

  3. This is Odell Beckham all over again. Can’t wait for the Giants to sign him to a big contract and then trade him three days later.
