The New York Jets received incredible news on Aaron Rodgers’ recovery ahead of their matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. Fans reacted to the news on social media Sunday afternoon.
Rodgers was traded by the Green Bay Packers to the Jets this spring in the most significant move of the offseason. Rodgers played four snaps for the Jets before sustaining an Achilles injury. Rodgers had surgery immediately following the injury and hopes to recover in time to play in the playoffs.
Rodgers is reportedly making speedy progress in his recovery. Per Jordan Shultz, Rodgers’ doctor cleared the quarterback to fly to New York this weekend. Rodgers spoke to his Jets teammates.
I’m told Rodgers just attended the team meeting and spoke to his teammates.

Rogers will get just as many passing TD's as Wilson.

You see that C on his chest? That’s a captain.
That means he needs to show up and lead this team, hurt or not😂

I texted my buddy earlier that I trust Rodgers with torn Achilles more than a fully healthy Wilson. He’s so bad man 😭

A A Ron could be in a wheelchair and still play better than Zach

Playing or not, he's still the leader.
