The Jets’ worst fears were confirmed on Tuesday, with Aaron Rodgers officially out for the season with a torn Achilles.
An MRI on Tuesday revealed a complete tear of Rodgers’ left Achilles tendon, a potentially career-ending injury for the 39-year-old quarterback.
Rodgers was injured when he was sacked by Leonard Floyd on just his third play of Monday night’s Bills-Jets game.
Head coach Robert Saleh says Zach Wilson, the former 1st round pick who took over for Rodgers on Monday, will be the team’s starter going forward.
What does this mean for the Jets? What does it mean for Rodgers’ career? Is this the biggest story coming out of Week 1?
