Kadarius Toney has been under fire throughout his rookie season, basically since he first put on a New York Giants uniform for his performance on the field. Toney did everything he could to silence his doubters in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, finishing with 10 catches for 189 yards -- becoming the first Giants rookie with 10 catches and 175 yards in a game since Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014. 

Instead, more questions are coming Toney's way after he was ejected for throwing a punch at Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss. Toney had his breakout game in the NFL, even though all the discussion involves around his actions when he wasn't catching the football. 

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

Judge said he's allow the league to handle any punishment that involves a suspension. The Giants can't afford to lose Toney with the injuries to Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton, and Sterling Shepard -- not after his 10 catches doubled the season total through his first three games. Toney had just 92 receiving yards prior to Sunday's game. 

"I think every rookie has a lot of maturing to do," Judge said. "You're asking specifically about an incident, I'm going to address that with the team. I'm going to address that with the players individually as well, make sure we're on the same page. There shouldn't be any confusion in that at all. I'll leave it at that."

Despite Toney's actions on the field, there was enough positive aspects of his game when he actually caught the football. The Giants have a player to build around based on Sunday's performance. 

"I think he's being very productive. He's a very talented player," Judge said. "I've said for a number of weeks, especially at that position, the receiver position, it takes some time to learn. There a lot of difference coming from college to the league for those positions. These guys obviously have a lot of, just, natural ability. 

"He's building a lot of technique, a lot of savvy. He's really understanding what the other teams are giving him. He's making plays. He was highly productive for us today in terms of making plays, getting down the field. He's a tough dude, I don't think there's any question about that and I think he's a very smart football player."
