The New York Jets’ playoff aspirations may be over, but Aaron Rodgers hasn’t changed his mind about returning this season.The New York Jets failed to meet their preseason expectations. Of course, it’s difficult to criticize them given that they lost their most crucial player just four games into the season. Aaron Rodgers’ Achilles rupture dealt a fatal blow to their Super Bowl hopes.Zach Wilson showed little signs of improvement from previous season, and the Jets refused to pursue an experienced backup when they had the opportunity. It was too late when they ultimately chose to bench him in favor of Tim Boyle.

This season, the Jets still had a ray of optimism and a chance to go the distance. Rodgers conquered Father Time, modern medicine, and all odds to return during the season despite sustaining a catastrophic injury. All they had to do in the meanwhile was keep the ship afloat.There was a time throughout the season when it looked like they were going to pull it off. Then, according to ESPN, multiple reality checks led to this team’s 4-7 record and a 1% chance of making the playoffs. Nonetheless, according to Peter King, Rodgers has not changed his mind about returning this season.Needless to say, Rodgers will only return if he is confident that he will not aggravate the injury further. If that is the case, King believes Rodgers will play this season regardless of the Jets’ record.

“If he can be sure he is reasonably recovered, without a significant risk of re-tearing the Achilles, I think he’d strongly consider playing, whatever the Jets’ record is,” he said.Rodgers apparently feels indebted to the organization for everything they did to bring him in and how they remade their roster around him. “I think he may feel a personal need to come back to a team that remade itself for him and is struggling incredibly with terrible quarterback play since he was lost in the first game of the season,” King stated.Rodgers might be back on the field as soon as this week, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. While a return to the field is not near, he will at the very least take the practice field and progress from there.

A well-known sports columnist accused New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers of lying about the severity of his Achilles injury. Rodgers has missed every offensive play for the Jets this season, with the exception of the first series in Week 1 due to a torn Achilles.Rodgers’ recovery appears to be ahead of time for the majority of players who suffer an Achilles injury. It usually takes six to twelve months to heal from an accident. However, Rodgers and the Jets believe he will be able to play again before their Christmas Eve game.If Rodgers returns in time for the Christmas, his comeback from a damaged Achilles tendon to playing in an NFL game will take less than four months.

Rodgers undertook an experimental treatment in the hopes of recovering in time to play in the playoffs if the Jets made it. (At the moment, they’re 4-7, so that seems doubtful.)Social media users were doubtful about the Achilles injury. Some believe that NBA star Kevin Durant’s injury was not a legitimate Achilles tear. As additional reports regarding Rodgers’ comeback surface this week, a sports columnist is doubting his ethics.The Indianapolis Star’s Gregg Doyel chastised Rodgers for lying about his ailment. Doyel stated on X that he does not feel it is a torn Achilles.When a fan challenged Doyel on the type of procedure Rodgers underwent and how the video of Rodgers’ injury appears to be an Achilles tear, Doyel reaffirmed his position.One has to question what Rodgers stands to gain from such a scheme to conceal the seriousness of the Achilles ailment. It’s an odd conspiracy with no proof to back it up.While Rodgers is notorious for stretching the facts and the news, he is also an athlete who can sustain an Achilles injury. Rodgers also has the funds and willingness to attempt experimental therapies that will allow him to recover quickly.
