Jon Feliciano to continue at center, and Bills' injury updates

The Buffalo Bills remain emerged from Thursday’s preseason victory without a significant number of injuries.

Center Russell Bodine has an oblique strain and starting center Mitch Morse remains in the concussion protocol, meaning Jon Feliciano remains in place with the first team. Feliciano got the start against the Indianapolis Colts.

Spencer Long also will see reps at center, but worked at guard Friday with Cody Ford at tackle and Ty Nsekhe having a veteran day off.

Morse was on the practice field Friday, working on snaps with the quarterbacks.

“Jon is a guy who is respected by his teammates and shows toughness,” coach Sean McDermott said Friday. “He’s not had the easiest of career trying to get into the starting lineup. You spend five minutes with him, and you get a pretty good feel for who he is as a person and a football player. That rubs off on a team.”

Feliciano, who signed with the Bills in the offseason from the Oakland Raiders, has not seen any ill effects from a shoulder injury that kept him out of practice last Sunday.

Tackle Connor McDermott is in the concussion protocol, McDermott said. He was cleared Thursday night but reported symptoms Friday morning.

Tight end Jason Croom, who has been sidelined during training camp with an hamstring injury, will do individual drills.

Defensive back Taron Johnson (groin), pass rusher Jerry Hughes (ankle) and safety Micah Hyde (neck) will be limited in Friday’s practice.

Rookie tight end Dawson Knox remains sidelined with a hamstring injury. "He’s probably not as far along as Jason," McDermott said. "The injuries happened at different times. He is getting better and will continue to progress as well in the next couple of days."
