The outing gave a few players an opportunity to make a last impression on the coaching staff before final roster cuts are submitted. To that end, Jones played six series. His counterpart in New York, Daniel Jones, played just the first half. 

That was all both teams needed to see from their starters as they move onto Week 1 of the regular season. Mostly, the two teams just wanted to escape without any significant injuries.

New York, unfortunately, couldn’t. Tight end Evan Engram exited early in the first half with a calf injury. His long-term status remains unknown.
