Aaron Rodgers Says Joining the Jets This Season Is 'Unrealistic' but Likely in 2024.

Following a full tear to his left Achilles in the opening game of the season, quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced that he would not be playing football again with the New York Jets this season.

The 40-year-old Rodgers announced the news on Tuesday's Pat McAfee Show, confirming that he has "been progressing steadily" in his recovery from the injury.

Nevertheless, Rodgers declared that expecting to be "at 100 percent to be medically cleared at any point during the regular season" was ultimately "unrealistic."

By the time he's "at 100 percent" physically, Rodgers believes he will have missed the regular season, and the Jets won't make the postseason with only a few games remaining.

"I do feel like in the next 3 or 4 weeks, it would be possible to get to 100 percent," he stated.

Leonard Floyd of the Buffalo Bills sacked Aaron Rodgers in the early minutes of the first quarter of their game on September 11, the day before Rodgers suffered the injury. 

Rodgers was a limited player for the New York squad.

The Jets quarterback said that he has had the opportunity to engage in some "7 on 7" work with his teammates when he called into McAfee's program on Tuesday from the team's practice facility.
