“Breaking News: Aaron Rodgers Returns to the New York Jets for Practice After Achilles Injury!”

With the New York Jets, Aaron Rodgers is starting his path back to form.

“QB Aaron Rodgers’ 21-day practice window will open today, according to Coach [Robert] Saleh,” the Jets’ official account stated on Wednesday, November 29 via X (previously Twitter).

Saleh, 44, spoke at a news conference after the revelation about what 39-year-old Aaron Rodgers will be doing while he continues to heal from his Achilles injury.

“For Aaron, in terms of specific drills in the individual, what he would be doing in practice is no different from what he would be doing on the field—he’s throwing with teammates instead of staff members,” Saleh informed reporters. “It carries no additional risk. We will let him do some activities for which he has received clearance.

Rodgers wasn’t “going to do anything to put himself in harm’s way,” according to Saleh as well.

After rupturing his Achilles in the opening moments of his Jets debut, Rodgers had surgery in September. It was anticipated that the football player’s injury would prevent him from playing for the whole of the campaign. Rodgers has made hints, though, that he intends to get past the challenge earlier than some anticipate.

In September, he stated on The Pat McAfee Show, “I just want to get healthy. I don’t wanna get caught into a timeline.” However, I will make every effort to recover and position myself to be able to play football at some point in the future. That is the objective.

Fans were taken aback when Rodgers was seen walking without crutches and passing passes to teammates while on the sidelines, over a month after his operation.

He has a goal in mind. At the time, Saleh told NBC Sports, “I don’t think anything is impossible for him. “I’ve heard he wants to come back this year and he’s really dominating rehab.”

In an interview with Melissa Stark of NBC in November, Aaron Rodgers stated that he intended to be back on the football field by mid-December.

“I know it sounds crazy, but you have a good patient and you perform good surgery, so it makes this possible,” he remarked. Stark remembered it then.

Rodgers joined the Jets for the first time this season after being traded by the Green Bay Packers. He spent eighteen seasons with the Packers, including the MVP award and winning the Super Bowl in 2011. In addition, he won multiple MVP season awards in 2020, 2021, 2014, and 2011.
