Rookie Andrew Thomas played 99 percent of the Giants’ offensive snaps in the first five games. So it came as a surprise when the fourth overall choice didn’t take his spot in the starting lineup at left tackle.

Giants coach Joe Judge said afterward that Thomas broke a team rule.

“I want to make clear this was not performance based at all,” Judge said, via video from SNY. “I’m not going to go too far into detail. What I will say is Andrew violated team policy. There was nothing disobedient, disrespectful or malicious in what he did, but he made a mistake and there are consequences for mistakes. We’ve got to make sure that we go ahead and handle that the right way. That being said, I thought Andrew did a really good job of accepting it, staying ready, performing when he got in the game.”
