On Wednesday, Aaron Rodgers gave New York Jets fans hope for a comeback. He had apparently already had an operation.
NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery on Wednesday after tearing his Achilles tendon. This emerges from a story published on Instagram by the star footballer of the New York Jets.
In it, the 39-year-old reported that the operation the day before had gone well and thanked his doctor for putting him “on the right path to recovery.” Rodgers captioned the post with a photo of himself in a hospital bed. On Wednesday he spoke for his new team for the first time since the injury in the first game of the season and indicated his desire for a comeback.
Because of his age, there had recently been speculation that Rodgers could possibly end his career. He had just moved from the Green Bay Packers to the Jets before this season, making the team a Super Bowl contender.
Jets coach Robert Saleh had already said he would be shocked if Rodgers didn’t make a comeback and ended his career in such a sad way. In the win against the Buffalo Bills, Rodgers had only been on the field for four plays before he was pulled to the ground in accordance with the rules and tore his Achilles tendon. Given his type of injury, experts expect him to be out of action for nine to twelve months.
