Days after getting backlash for his Travis Kelce rant, Jets QB Aaron Rodgers shares inspiring photos amid rehab

After making headlines as one of the top contenders for the Lombardi trophy, the New York Jets are now working to regain their lost respect after a disappointing 1-3 start to the season. New starter Aaron Rodgers was projected to be the protagonist of a new golden dynasty for the franchise, but the quarterback himself is now having uncertainty after sustaining a scary injury.

Though Zach Wilson managed to lead the Jets to a near win, his effort was not promising throughout the season. Seemingly, the Jets fans can only be rest assured when the former Green Bay Packers QB stays at the helm, and hence, his recent snaps from rehab can be a reason for happiness for them.

Aaron Rodgers posts photos of rehab

Though the fans might be losing hope thinking about the uncertainty of Rodgers this season, he himself has never showcased any sign of stopping midway. On Saturday, the 39-year-old QB once again raised the bar of expectations regarding his potential comeback this season by sharing some black-and-white photos.

In the Instagram post captioned “Three weeks into the rise to recovery #healing”, the four-time MVP shared some snaps from his recovery and rehabilitation process to make the sports enthusiasts believe that he is gearing up himself in the best way to deliver a potential MVP-level performance on the field.

The Jets signal-caller was projected to suffer a potential season-ending injury during his first match donning the team’s jersey. However, Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network later reported that the 18-year veteran has a chance to resume play this year as well.

The renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache, and his team were in charge of the dual-threar’s surgery. Rapoport and Pelissero revealed the team used an internal brace called an Achilles “speed bridge” in conducting his surgery. It is a modern method of dealing with this kind of injury, and most positively, the process can reduce his recovery period to four months.

Ex-surgeon calls out Rodgers for mocking kelce’s vaccine endorsement

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce got featured in commercials for the pharmaceutical giant to promote COVID-19 and flu vaccines. Rodgers, being a pure hater of the vaccine, hilariously took a dig at the Chiefs star by calling him “Mr. Pfizer” during his appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show”.

Though the All-Pro TE didn’t showcase bothering after unintendedly getting embroiled in the vax wars, Jerome Adams, a former United States Surgeon General, was not happy about the Jets QB jab. The surgeon reached out to X, formerly known as Twitter, to deliver a long thread aimed at him.

In the post, Adams made a comparison between two hypothetical footballers, with one suffering a season-ending injury after using psychedelics while the other is showcasing incredible performance on the field after being vaccinated. He raised eyebrows about A-Rod’s credibility to put fingers at Kelce.

The veteran Surgeon also claimed psychedelics do not cause Achilles tears as vaccines do not guarantee dates with Taylor Swift while mentioning the signal-caller’s preference for unorthodox and unvetted practices. Meanwhile, Rodgers has once again become in the negative spotlight due to his intense hate for vaccines.
