Aaron Rodgers discusses his mindset on injury and potential comeback

Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles tendon in the New York Jets’ debut game at MetLife Stadium after being sacked by a Buffalo Bill’s player. The four-time MVP was categorized as having a season-ending injury after just four plays in New York City following the MRI results.

Meanwhile, the 39-year-old had already undergone surgery to bounce back as soon as possible, and in his recent appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show”, the quarterback revealed his road to recovery. Aaron claimed that, in the locker room, he had some degree of certainty about his season-ending injury before the MRI results became public.

Although the Jets’ new offensive coordinator’s NFL career is already coming to an end, he declared his aim and determination to fight fiercely to soon make a comeback. A-Rod appeared adamant about beating the rehab process on his appearance in the show, despite the fact that it was a lengthy and challenging process.

“I popped my calf a few times, especially the soleus and this was not that sensation, so I knew right away this was not a good situation, so and I’ve known about this situation, this rehab I’ve had friends who’ve done it, fellow competitors who I know who’ve done it and have come back from it.”

Aaron joined the Jets after accomplishing a stellar 18-year career in Green Bay due to a misunderstanding with the team management.
