The season for New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is officially over, having lasted a mere four plays in his debut on Monday night against the Buffalo Bills before being felled by a torn Achilles. An MRI the following day confirmed the grim diagnosis, meaning that the starting quarterback duties for the Jets now belong to Zach Wilson for the remainder of the schedule.
Could the career of Rodgers be over, especially now that he's pushing nearly 40 years of age? For those who are wondering what his plans are, Rodgers has pushed back on any thought of his hanging up the cleats for good.
He wrote on his Instagram account that he will be back:
"Thank you to every person that has reached out, called, texted, DM'd, connected through a friend, etc.," Rodgers wrote on Instagram. "It has meant a ton to me, and I'll try and get back to all of you soon.
"I'm completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin the healing process today.
"The night is darkest before the dawn. And I shall rise yet again. Proud of my guys, 1-0."
Well, there you have it.
