Aaron Rodgers recently made his first social media post since tearing his Achilles, and it strongly indicates that he plans to play again. During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers discussed his future plans and revealed that he started thinking about it as soon as he got injured. He stated that he was aware of the severity of the injury even before receiving the MRI results and understood the challenges of rehabilitation. Despite doubters, Rodgers welcomes the skepticism and encourages people to ask questions about his return. He emphasized that all he needs is that one percent of inspiration to fuel his comeback.
Rodgers mentioned that he has heard various timelines for his recovery and hinted that his thoughts on when he will return might surprise some people. When asked about the possibility of returning this season, he kept the door open by saying that anything is possible and that the team wants to push his recovery as far as they can. He cited examples of other athletes, like Terrell Suggs and Cam Akers, who successfully returned to the field after undergoing Achilles surgery. The potential timeline for Rodgers to return could align with the divisional round of the playoffs, but nothing is set in stone.
Despite the uncertainty, it is clear that Rodgers is determined to return to the field at some point. For now, the Jets’ focus is on ensuring his successful recovery and eagerly awaiting his comeback.
