New York Giants center Jon Feliciano didn’t observe on Friday after struggling “heat and hydration” issues throughout Thursday’s observe.
“He is okay,” mentioned head coach Brian Daboll earlier than Friday’s observe. “I’ll tell you, there were a couple guys. We’ll probably have a few guys down today relative to heat and hydration and just to be smart on that end, but he’s good. It was Felice. Jon Feliciano.”
Feliciano might have been okay, however the Giants’ offense was not. They don’t have a lot of backup plan at center.
We’re completed. Let’s simply say it was a tough day for Daniel Jones and the #Giants offense. Defense gained the day. Dexter Lawrence spent the observe within the backfield. C Jon Feliciano was missed.

There’s a motive why I had Jon Feliciano in my Top 12 #Giants Countdown and we noticed that in at present’s observe.
Feliciano sat out as a result of warmth exhaustion yesterday + backups Jamil Douglas and Ben Bredeson had their arms full, particularly on a blitz day targeted on third-and-longs.

Jamil Douglas and Ben Bredeson are usually not pure facilities. Both are guards and each might be on the roster bubble come the top of August. And every had been responsible of crusing snaps main on Friday.
The Giants are nonetheless hopeful Nick Gates, who suffered a devastating leg fracture final yr, continues on his trajectory and recovers in full. But that could be a large ask. Big Blue goes to have to handle this obvious want earlier than the season begins.
