EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets will have to play the rest of the game against the Green Bay Packers without their top defensive lineman.

Leonard Williams was ejected for throwing a punch at Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga after the two got into a shoving match during a 14-yard pass play to Equanimeous St. Brown late in the second quarter.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers took exception to Williams' actions and shoved the defensive lineman.

After a lengthy conference by the officials, they called a personal foul on Williams and tossed him from the game.

Williams had a sack earlier in the game, giving him four this season.
