Aaron Rodgers‘ first season with the Jets is over before it could ever take off — the superstar quarterback suffered a torn Achilles in his first-ever game for New York, officially ending his 2023 campaign.
The team confirmed the devastating news on Tuesday … announcing the 39-year-old Super Bowl champion will be sidelined for the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a complete tear in his left Achilles tendon.
Rodgers went down in the Jets’ fourth offensive snap of Monday Night Football against Buffalo … when Bills linebacker Leonard Floyd tackled him to the turf.
Initial x-rays came back negative … and there was a small possibility Rodgers may have just had a high ankle sprain.
Unfortunately for Rodgers and Co., Tuesday’s scans confirmed the worst.
Now, the once-Super Bowl hopefuls will turn to backup Zach Wilson … in hopes of having a successful season without their star QB under center.
Rodgers has experienced numerous injuries throughout his career … but this is by far the most serious, and many are wondering if he will be able to bounce back and return to his dominant ways.
