RB Devontae Booker

On going from being inactive to the feature back of the offense: “I can only control what I can control. The stuff that happened today with Saquon, I am just getting ready and prepared every week as if I am the starter or whatever. It sucks to see him go down, now I just got to be ready.”

On the range of emotions when Daniel Jones got injured: “Really we were just thinking about scoring. Obviously, injuries happen in a game and we don’t want them to happen. But we have to be next player mentality, especially being right there on the goal line. We have to score and that was the whole mentality there on the goal line.”

On if he saw Saquon in the locker room and how he is doing: “He is very humble. He may be back next week, who knows. As far as me, just continuing to go out there, work my butt off and prepare like I am the starter.”

On if it was like having the preseason lineup on the field: “Yeah, it was. All the guys going down, this is what we prepare for. I am pretty sure all the guys prepared like this as if they are the starter. Backup guys, third stringers, whoever. That is just our mentality. One guy goes down, next man up. You have to go out there and perform when an opportunity comes to us.”

On whether he has been part of a game where the team lost its QB, RB and a top WR: “Not that I can recall. It’s always just one or the other. This, today, I was just like, damn. It is next man up mentality and we all have to go out there and perform, and fight our butt off.”

On the shuffle on offensive line and how it is for the offense: “It can be hard at some point in time, but we all know going out there that it just has to gel when the offensive plays are called and go out and execute. Week in and week out, somebody could be up, somebody could be down due to an injury. We just have to go out there and execute, and go out there and play to win.”
