Giants’ Kadarius Toney ejected after throwing punch late in loss to Cowboys

Kadarius Toney put forth the best effort of his Giants career in Week 5 on Sunday. His day ended on a sour note, however.

Toney got into a scrap late in the Giants’ 44-20 loss to the Cowboys. He threw a punch at Dallas safety Damontae Kazee after being sent to the turf following his 10th catch of the game. He was ejected.

Toney’s punch was more of an open-hand strike to the side of the helmet; nonetheless, referee John Hussey threw him out of the game, which had effectively been decided at that point. The Giants trailed 34-13 with 6:24 left in the fourth quarter when Toney was tossed.

Toney will likely face NFL discipline in the form of a fine. That will be the one pall hanging over an otherwise sterling effort.

But Toney was also reckless at times. He threw the punch, and earlier in the game he accidentally head-butted someone on the Giants’ sideline while receiving treatment for an apparent ankle injury.

Nobody was hurt after Toney’s jump up from the bench, but he may be told to tamp down his energy moving forward.
