Selected quotes from the Jets' MetLife Stadium locker room following their 16-10 victory over the Eagles in the final preseason game Thursday night:

Head coach Todd Bowles on his thoughts when Josh McCown left the field for a play on his second series...
"Next man up. When I saw it, it didn't look like it was anything body-wise. It looked like he got the wind knocked out of him so I wasn't too worried."

Bowles on the final cuts that have to be made by Saturday 4 p.m. ET...
"There are going to be some tough ones. Some guys stepped up tonight and made some plays. Some guys disappeared a little bit. Having to cut all of them at one time is going to be tough."

QB Christian Hackenberg on the touchdown throw to Seferian-Jenkins...
"We had man-to-man and Austin won, made a great catch. It was the look we wanted for that specific play and it was good because we didn't hit that much during camp. So to be able to do it at that point in time in the game, live rep, I thought that was really good just as a team, overall execution."

Seferian-Jenkins on the TD throw from Hackenberg...
"It was more of a pretty pass than a catch. It was definitely an easy play to make when you get a perfect ball like that. They could review it all the wanted, all they saw was another good pass and catch."

ASJ on being a force inside the opponents' 20...
"I love the red zone and I want the ball in the red zone."

QB Bryce Petty on what he needs to be ready to play if called on in the season opener at Buffalo...
"It [knee injury] just happened four days, five days ago. This is a timing injury, so if this game was on a Sunday and not on a Thursday, I'd be fine. It was just a short week and we didn't have a whole lot of time to regroup, but it will get better each and every day."

Petty on if he has any family affected in Texas by Hurricane Harvey...
"I don't. I have a lot of friends that I played with at Baylor that have been, though, so it's a tough deal. But it's outstanding to see the outflowing of support from people everywhere and especially with the NFL teams giving money, so my heart and prayers go out to all those affected."

S Terrence Brooks on having an impactful game against the Eagles, who traded him to the Jets several days ago...
"Of course, of course. It felt good, man. I was grinding with those guys all through camp and it was good to see them again. ... But that's who I am. And I feel I can do much better than that. And the more I get comfortable with this defense and this organization, I feel like the more I'm able to bring myself out. Today was just a little taste of what I can do. But there's always room for improvement. I try to perfect my craft every day, get better at something each and every day. Tonight was just a special night for me."
