I honestly can’t believe that five minutes into the game everybody was watching for the sole reason of seeing Aaron Rodgers play with the New York Jets, Rodgers got injured. Really? I know that the NFL brings a lot of surprises. For example, the Lions beating the Chiefs last week was a surprise. But, this is just crazy. So, now Rodgers has a possible season-ending injury. Where do we go from here?
Aaron Rodgers: New York Jets React to Possible Season-Ending Injury
Rodgers is going to get a formal MRI on Tuesday (Sept. 12). But, many think this is a torn Achilles. That’s not an injury anyone wants. It’s a long-term injury and one that could end his season. After all this hype? That hurts. It was easy to see that Rodgers was upset about the early injury on the field, as he looked very frustrated while being taken to the sidelines.
“I hurt for Aaron because I know how much he’s invested in this,” head coach Robert Saleh said via Yahoo! Sports. “I’m still going to say a prayer, I’m still going to hold out hope. My heart’s with Aaron right now, and nowhere else.” He added, “I hurt for Aaron because I know how much he’s invested in this,” Saleh said. “I’m still going to say a prayer, I’m still going to hold out hope. My heart’s with Aaron right now, and nowhere else.”
“We still have a hell of a group of guys,” Jets coach Robert Saleh told ESPN’s Lisa Salters at the game. “Obviously Aaron is a big part of that, but we still have an unbelievable defense, we’ve got a lot of great guys on offense and we’ll get this thing done.”
“It’s bad that he went down so early, the people didn’t get to see what we’ve been working on,” running back Dalvin Cook added via Yahoo! Sports. “The league is better when Aaron Rodgers is on the field.” We’ll keep you posted with updates.
