Aaron Rodgers out for rest of NFL season with torn Achilles

Aaron Rodgers NFL news

In his highly anticipated debut with the New York Jets on Monday, Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles on just his fourth snap of the game and, as a result, will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2023-24 NFL season.

This unfortunate turn of events has cast a shadow over what was a season filled with excitement and Super Bowl aspirations for Jets fans.

With the future Hall of Famer at quarterback, the expectations were high; however, it is now uncertain whether Rodgers, 39, will ever take another snap in the NFL.

In a surprising twist, the Jets still managed to secure a victory against the Buffalo Bills, with backup quarterback Zach Wilson stepping in.

However, Wilson struggled significantly, and credit for the win must largely go to the Jets’ defense.

Losing Rodgers undoubtedly limits the Jets’ potential, and while they have a good roster, the Super Bowl ceiling they once possessed has caved in on them.

Despite the victory, the Jets’ Super Bowl odds have soared on most NFL betting sites, going from +1600 to +6500, and optimism is in short supply with Wilson at the helm for his third season.

Even the betting line for next week’s game against the Dallas Cowboys has shifted, with the Jets moving from +3 to +7.5 on the spread with Bovada.

The question of whether Rodgers will play again remains unanswered, and it’s unclear whether the Jets will pursue a new quarterback in his absence.

Regardless of what unfolds, this injury is a significant setback for a franchise that has faced its share of challenges since their lone Super Bowl win in 1968.
