Aaron Rodgers Still Hopes To Return This Year

Wednesday, October 4, 11:13 AM

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.

C.J. Beathard Looks Like The QB2 For Jacksonville

Sunday, August 27, 3:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback C.J. Beathard went 8-for-10 for 134 yards, a touchdown, and a near-perfect passer rating of 152.1 in Saturday's 31-18 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins. The vet came into camp with a leg up on rookie Nathan Rourke for the QB2 spot behind Trevor Lawrence, but the latter has been applying some pressure with his play through two games. Beathard was the second QB to take over after Lawrence in this one, leading three consecutive scoring drives to close out the first half. The performance was highlighted by a 74-yard touchdown strike to sophomore wide receiver Tim Jones, who broke open on the left side of the field and cruised in untouched for the score. Rourke quarterbacked the entire second half of the game, which saw the Jaguars put up two more touchdowns. Still, the Ohio native finished with a measly 74 passing yards on only six attempts, as Jacksonville opted to go with a more ground-heavy attack. At this point, Beathard has held onto his QB2 position but is still firmly off the fantasy radar unless something happens to Lawrence.
