Todd Bowles addressed injuries to several Jets in his postgame press conference following the team’s 16-10 victory over the Eagles in the preseason finale Thursday night.

Josh McCown briefly left the game after taking a big hit in the first quarter. Since the Jets were willing to put McCown back into a preseason game, it didn’t seem like anything major. Bowles confirmed it.

McCown left the game for good in the first half. Christian Hackenberg came in and played the rest of the way. Bryce Petty did not get any action. Are there any tea leaves to read about Petty’s place on the depth chart? Bowles indicated that was not the case. Hackenberg’s playing time was based on the knee injury Petty suffered against the Giants.

Finally, tight end Chris Gragg left the game with what looked like a serious lower body injury. Bowles didn’t have a ton of specifics, but he did sound concerned.
