Aaron Rodgers Still Hopes To Return This Year

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles), who is three weeks removed from surgery to fix a torn Achilles, said on Tuesday that he's "well ahead of the normal protocols" and still believes he can return this year. "There's nothing normal about how I'm attacking this rehab," Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show. "The common practice is about six weeks in a boot, and I was in a shoe in 13 days." Rodgers also said he's dealing with a deltoid issue, the main ligament on the inner side, which explains why he's wearing an ankle brace. A typical recovery is six to nine months, although medical experts have said it's possible to return in four to five months. On the short end of the timetable, Rodgers could return in mid-January. The regular season ends on Jan. 7.

Aaron Rodgers To Return For The Postseason?

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) hopes to return in time for the postseason, assuming the team makes it that far. The veteran signal-caller, who was traded to New York during the offseason, ruptured his Achilles only four snaps into his tenure with the Jets. However, after it appeared all was lost, Rodgers underwent an "innovative" procedure on Wednesday known as a "Speed Bridge," performed by "renowned orthopedic surgeon" Dr. Neal ElAttrache. While the news doesn't mean much for fantasy managers regarding the 2023-24 campaign, it likely means that Rodgers isn't planning on calling it quits anytime soon. It's also a good sign concerning his availability for OTAs and training camp next offseason. For now, Zach Wilson is expected to handle things under center moving ahead.

Aaron Rodgers An Option For The Postseason?

The New York Jets have said that quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is out for the 2023 season after tearing his left Achilles in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills, but Rodgers left the door open on the Pat McAfee Show for a long-shot playoff return. "Anything's possible," Rodgers said. The Jets would first need to make the playoffs with Zach Wilson now their starting QB, which could be a long shot in itself. The 39-year-old Rodgers didn't even complete a pass before his season ended in his first game with the Jets on Monday night. All indications are that Rodgers plans to return in 2024, but he faces a grueling rehab in front of him and will be 40 years old coming off a major injury next year, so the deck will surely be stacked against him.

Aaron Rodgers Has Successful Surgery

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) said that "surgery went great yesterday" to fix a torn left Achilles that he suffered in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury on the first offensive series of his Jets tenure and will now miss the entire 2023 season. It's a tough break for the Jets and the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer. All signs point to Rodgers trying to come back in his age-40 campaign with the Jets next year, but he'll face a grueling rehab first. New York is moving forward with Zach Wilson and Tim Boyle in their QB room. The move from Rodgers to Wilson for the rest of the year is definitely a downgrade for all of the team's offensive skill players, most notably receivers Garrett Wilson and Allen Lazard.

Aaron Rodgers Hints At Coming Back

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) wrote in a post on social media that he is "completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions" after tearing his left Achilles in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. "The night is darkest before the dawn. And I shall rise yet again." Both head coach Robert Saleh and owner Woody Johnson expect the four-time MVP to return in 2024. However, the 39-year-old is the oldest player in the NFL and now faces several months of grueling rehab ahead of him. It's going to be tough for Rodgers to make a successful comeback at his age, but it's not out of the question. For now, the Jets will roll with Zach Wilson as their starter under center with Tim Boyle backing him up.

Robert Saleh Not Expecting Aaron Rodgers To Retire

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he would be surprised if quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) hangs up his cleats after tearing his left Achilles in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. "I'd be shocked if this is the way he's going to go out," Saleh said Wednesday. Rodgers is the oldest player in the league at 39 years old, and he's facing several months of grueling rehab if he wants to try and return in 2024. The four-time MVP is receiving "consultations, trying to figure out what his next best move is," but he hasn't scheduled surgery yet. Rodgers is signed through the 2025 season and said multiple times before his injury that his goal was to play multiple years in New York. For the rest of the way this year, the Jets will roll with Zach Wilson under center.

MRI Confirms Complete Achilles Tear For Aaron Rodgers

An MRI exam confirmed what the New York Jets feared on Monday night: that four-time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) suffered a complete tear of his left Achilles in the win over the Buffalo Bills, according to sources. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer tore his Achilles on the first offensive series of the night and will now miss the entire 2023 season. Even though the Jets rallied to beat Buffalo in overtime to close out Week 1, it's a crushing blow to the Jets the rest of the way. Former first-rounder Zach Wilson, who has struggled so far in his NFL career, will now be the starter under center the rest of the way. It will be a big downgrade for New York's offensive skill players like receivers Garrett Wilson and Allen Lazard, especially when you consider the Jets' suspect offensive line.

Jets Believe Aaron Rodgers Suffered Serious Achilles Injury

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh told reporters after Monday's 22-16 victory over the Buffalo Bills that he believes quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) suffered an Achilles injury and that "it's not good". The 39-year-old will head for an MRI on Tuesday, but the Jets seem to already be anticipating a potential torn Achilles. It's shaping up to be a crushing blow for New York after Rodgers couldn't even complete one pass before being forced from the season opener after just his fourth snap of the season. The entire Jets supporting cast stands to fall in terms of fantasy value for the rest of the season if Tuesday's MRI indeed confirms the worst outcome for the four-time MVP. 2021 No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson appears in line to start for the rest of the campaign.

Jets Fear That Aaron Rodgers Suffered Achilles Injury

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (ankle) received negative X-rays on his ankle on Monday night but will now have to undergo an MRI. According to Jordan Schultz, the team fears that the star quarterback suffered some sort of Achilles injury. It's still unknown whether his Achilles has ruptured and the team will have an MRI done on Tuesday. If he has to miss extended time, this severely limits the fantasy value of the pass-catchers on the team. Fantasy managers will want to check back once the results of the MRI come back.

Aaron Rodgers Will Not Return On Monday Night

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (ankle) has officially been ruled out and will not return to Monday night's game against the Bills. The veteran limped off the field and into the medical tent until he was carted back to the locker room shortly afterward. The team has also said that the X-rays have come back negative. It's still unclear how serious this ankle injury could be, so the team will operate with Zach Wilson behind center in the meantime. Stay tuned for any more information in regards to how much time Rodgers may miss beyond Week 1.

Aaron Rodgers Injures Ankle, Questionable To Return

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (ankle) didn't last long in his debut for the Jets on Monday night in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills. He suffered an ankle injury on the offense's first series of the game and is now questionable to return. Rodgers was seen limping off the field before heading to the medical tent. He was then carted to the locker room, so it would be a surprise to see him return to this game. Before leaving, the 39-year-old was unable to complete his only pass attempt while getting injured on a sack that lost 10 yards. Backup Zach Wilson is now in the game, which is a downgrade for the rest of New York's offensive weapons in fantasy, most notably wide receiver Garrett Wilson. Check back for the severity of Rodgers' injury and whether he'll have to miss any time beyond Week 1.

Aaron Rodgers Set For Regular Season Jets Debut

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers will make his regular-season debut for the team in a Week 1 home matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Rodgers is looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2022 campaign but will be tested immediately as the Bills allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks last year. The excitement for the Jets this season is warranted, but fantasy managers may want to be patient with the 39-year-old signal-caller. A solid option in superflex formats, Rodgers should be considered a mid-range QB2 with upside on Monday night.

Aaron Rodgers Throws Touchdown In Preseason Finale

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed five of his eight pass attempts for 47 yards and a touchdown in the team's preseason victory over the New York Giants. Rodgers played on each of the Jets' first two drives, with the first resulting in a punt and the second ending in a perfect pass to receiver Garrett Wilson for a 14-yard score. This was the former MVP's first and only preseason action but he already appears to be in regular-season form. At 39 years old, Rodgers may not be the high-end fantasy quarterback he once was, but he should still return value on his ADP in the ninth round.

Aaron Rodgers Will Play In Final Preseason Game

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers will suit up for the team's final preseason game on Saturday against the New York Giants. The veteran signal-caller, who was traded to New York during the offseason after a impressive tenure in Green Bay, will make his unofficial Jets' debut. However, it's likely Rodgers won't see much action, as head coach Robert Saleh will look to keep him healthy heading toward the Week 1 opener versus the Buffalo Bills.

Aaron Rodgers Won't Play In Second Preseason Game

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that quarterback Aaron Rodgers won't play in the team's second preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. Saleh hasn't decided on whether Rodgers will see any action in the preseason finale versus the New York Giants on Aug. 26. The 39-year-old future Hall of Fame QB was never expected to see any preseason repetitions until at least the third and final game. Rodgers is looking to bounce back in 2023 after a career-worst season in his final year with the Green Bay Packers. He has the improved weapons around him in New York to get it done, but he'll have an extremely tough test in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills. Draft Rodgers as a high-end QB2 in fantasy instead of your QB1.

Could see snaps in preseason finale

Coach Robert Saleh noted earlier this week that if Rodgers plays during the preseason, it would be for "a quick tuneup" in the Jets' exhibition finale on Aug. 26 versus the Giants, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Could play later in preseason

As Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Browns approaches, Rodgers noted that he "wouldn't mind playing in the preseason," while suggesting that seeing action in the Jets' exhibition finale is a possibility, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
