New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney was ejected with 6:06 remaining in the fourth quarter for throwing a punch at Dallas defensive back Damontae Kazee following a scuffle.
Toney, who was have a career day for a Giants team that was without Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard for the whole game and lost Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, and Daniel Jones in the first half, made some nifty moves on a 16-yard catch and run where he was stopped and then shoved down at the end, and that’s where fireworks began.
Kazee threw Toney down to end the play, and Evan Engram jumped in to stick up for his receiver. Kazee and Engram exchanged shoves, and that’s when Toney jumped up and threw a blatant closed hand punch at Kazee, drawing a flag.
Toney and Kazee were both assessed personal fouls that offset, and Yung Joka was ejected for the punch, earning himself an earful from head coach Joe Judge as he walked off the field.
That catch was the tenth of the day for Toney, and he had a game-high 189 yards when he departed, leaving the Giants’ wide receiver depth chart down to John Ross III, Collin Johnson, and return specialist C.J. Board.
Toney had just 10 catches for 92 yards over the first four games prior to breaking out in the absence of much of the Giants’ skill unit.
