Giants C Jon Feliciano (heat exhaustion) out another ‘day or two’

New York Giants center Jon Feliciano missed practice again Monday due to issues related to heat exhaustion.

The 30-year-old initially suffered what coach Brian Daboll termed “heat and hydration” issues Thursday and has not been with the team since. But Daboll said Monday the veteran would rejoin the team soon enough.

“Day or two away,” Daboll said. “But he’ll be here this week.”

Daboll answered in the affirmative when asked if Feliciano needed intravenous treatment.

“Yeah, he’s taking care of himself. They’re working with him,” Daboll said. “He’ll be OK.”

Feliciano followed Daboll from the Buffalo Bills to the Giants, where he signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract as a free agent in March. A longtime guard for the then-Oakland Raiders (2015-18) and Bills (2019-21), Feliciano was picked up to play center in New York’s revamped offensive line.

With Feliciano sidelined, guard Shane Lemieux played some center during recent training camp practices.

“We want to try to create position flexibility for our front guys,” Daboll said. “And obviously with Jon out, you know with (guards) Ben (Bredeson) and Jamil (Douglas), we wanted to add Lemieux inside and get (guard Joshua) Ezeudu some work inside there with the ones against (defensive linemen) Leo (Williams) and Dexter (Lawrence) and guys like that.”

Bills rule out S Jordan Poyer, G Jon Feliciano vs. Texans

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer and left guard Jon Feliciano will miss Sunday’s home game against the Houston Texans, coach Sean McDermott said Friday on his radio show.

Poyer (ankle) was injured last week against the Washington Football Team. Feliciano sustained a concussion during Wednesday’s practice.

Poyer had an interception in the 43-21 rout of Washington last Sunday. The 30-year-old has 12 tackles in three games this season for the Bills (2-1).

Poyer, a nine-year veteran, has 16 career interceptions in 114 games (76 starts) with the Philadelphia Eagles (2013), Cleveland Browns (2013-16) and Bills.

Feliciano, 29, has started all 28 games in which he has played since joining the Bills prior to the 2019 seasons. He spent his first four seasons with the then-Oakland Raiders and started eight of 48 games played.

McDermott also said cornerback Taron Johnson (groin) and defensive end Efe Obada (ankle) will likely be listed as questionable when the Bills release their injury report later Friday.
