Aaron Rodgers Surprise Return: Jets’ Playoff Hopes Revived?

Even the boldest optimists at the New York Jets probably wouldn’t have expected this. Aaron Rodgers is set for a surprise return after tearing his Achilles tendon in mid-September.

79 days after the serious injury to its star quarterback, the NFL franchise announced that the 39-year-old was about to return to team training. Head coach Robert Saleh said during a press conference that Rodgers could return to “functional football activities.”

Therefore, the Jets opened a 21-day training window, which means: Within the next three weeks it will be decided whether Rodgers will play in the NFL again this year. If the veteran is not nominated for the active 53-man squad after this period, he will no longer be allowed to play in 2023.

In the past few weeks, Rodgers has repeatedly indicated that he wants to make his comeback to the NFL in the current season.

For the Jets, the news comes at the right time after a messed up season so far. With a record of four wins and seven defeats, they are currently lagging behind in the playoff race.

The team is currently two successes behind the required seventh place. With a fit Rodgers, New York could make another attack on the postseason.
