Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes offers prayers to Aaron Rodgers after Jets QB’s ankle injury: “Hate that, man”

The most thrilling story of this offseason would surely be the divorce of Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers which eventually allowed the New York Jets to bolster their roster with the 10x Pro Bowler. Many compared it to the last stint of Tom Brady while many cited the Rodgers-era could bring about the end of the Jets’ Super Bowl drought.

Monday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills marked Aaron Rodgers’ debut in the Big Apple. Unfortunately, the star quarterback’s debut match saw him suffer an early injury which drew prayers from the entire league including star QB Patrick Mahomes.

The Jets’ fans were ecstatic to see their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers take a shot for their team since they envisioned that he would fuel the team’s Super Bowl aspirations this season. Sadly, it ended up being a nightmare for them.

“Absolutely devastating blow to the #Jets season with the injury to Aaron Rodgers. If it’s serious, which seems likely, the Jets go from Super Bowl contender to bottom 10 team in the league. Pray for a Jets fan tonight.”, an X user named NFL Notifications wrote.

Peyton Manning and Eli Manning, two NFL experts, were likewise taken aback by Rodger’s apparent injury.

The story was twisted by Rodgers’ former Packers mate David Bakhtiari as he placed the blame on MetLife Stadium’s turf. It’s because of the recent renovations to MetLife Stadium, where new synthetic turf was supposed to be installed owing to safety concerns. Unfortunately, the stadium once more witnessed an injury of one of the best players in the league.

“Congrats @nfl. How many more players have to get hurt on ARTIFICIAL TURF??! You care more about soccer players than us.”, Bakhtiari wrote in X.

Rodgers’s injury allowed Zach Wilson to grab the starter spot. Even though the Jets won that game 22-16, the night would undoubtedly go down as a dismal memory until there are some good news on Rodgers’ part.
