New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney issued a statement on Monday regarding an incident involving him and Dallas Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee in the game the Giants lost 44-20 to the Cowboys on Sunday.

The 22-year-old rookie punched Kazee in the fourth quarter and got ejected by officials because of it.

Toney then went to Twitter and apologized for the incident.

“Wanna take the time out to apologize to the entire organization, owners, my teammates and the entire Big Blue,” he wrote. “…your emotions just can get the best of you sometimes …. No excuses just actions.”

According to Ian Rapoport at NFL Network, Toney is unlikely to be suspended, but the league will review the incident to determine a fine.

“Giants WR Kadarius Toney will be evaluated for a likely fine but no suspension after he was ejected for throwing a punch at Cowboys S Damontae Kazee. At the end of a monster game, Toney was tossed,” Rapoport wrote.

Giants coach Joe Judge was not happy with Toney’s action, saying that his behavior was “not going to be accepted” in the press conference post-game.

Judge and the Giants now prepare for a Week 6 clash against the Los Angeles Rams without wide receiver Kenny Golladay, running back Saquon Barkley, and quarterback Daniel Jones, who are all currently out due to injuries.
