Officials ejected Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney toward the end of Big Blue’s loss to Dallas Sunday afternoon.

Kadarius Toney put together his best game as a pro on Sunday. He may even win the Pepsi Rookie of the Week, like Jets quarterback Zach Wilson did for Week 4.

But Toney’s sensational performance didn’t end pretty.

Toward the end of the Giants‘ Week 5 loss to the Cowboys, in which Toney caught 10 balls for 189 yards, the rookie receiver threw a punch at Dallas safety Damontae Kazee. This was after Kazee threw Toney to the ground after the whistle on Kadarius’ final catch of the day.

Officials ejected Toney, but according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the first-year player won’t be suspended.

And no, head coach Joe Judge wasn’t exactly pleased with Toney’s actions…

“There’s a pretty distinct line in terms of competing and doing things we’re not going to condone as a team and put us behind,” Judge said following the 44-20 loss. “That’s not going to be accepted. That’s not going to be condoned.”

Toney not succumbing to a suspension is great news for the Giants, who are searching for any ideal tidbit at this point. Not only are they 1-4, but Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, and Kenny Golladay all exited Sunday’s game. While Jones is dealing with a concussion, Barkley has a low-ankle sprain and Golladay has a knee injury.

Rapoport reports Barkley will likely be out for next Sunday’s game against the Rams but could miss additional time thereafter.

It’s currently unclear how much time Jones and Golladay will need to miss moving forward.
