Giants tight end Larry Donnell departed Wednesday’s minicamp practice in an ambulance due to the heat, according to multiple reports from club beat writers.

Donnell had an “apparent heat-related problem,” Jordan Raanan of NJ.com said on Twitter.

Per WeatherUnderground.com, temperatures are in the low 90s in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where the Giants are headquartered.

The 25-year-old Donnell is a second-year pro from Grambling. He played all 16 games for the Giants in 2013, catching three passes for 31 yards.

    We’ve learned this hard lesson already. Let’s not have to learn it again. From Steelers Nation, someone please get that man an iv immediately. You’ve all our best, Larry.

  2. Not knowing who this guy is, I read the headline and immediately assumed he was some 350-lb OG or DT. Obviously, that is not the case.

    Just goes to show you never know just by looking at people, who can fall prey to those conditions and you can never be too safe.

  3. The whole East Coast is a furnace right now. Whenever I step outside my office building, the heat hits you in the face like a Mike-Tyson-in-his-prime knockout punch. Hope Donnell will be OK.

  4. Ever notice how the Buffalo Bills or NY Jets never have to play the Dolphins in Miami in September. In fact, this is the first time NE is playing there early in 8 years. It is a true advantage training in these conditions from April on and the Schedule Gods normally put Miami on the road for 3 of those weeks or out of division games. Hope the dude is OK, but obviously the Trainers are not keeping an eye on them or planning hydration the day before!
