The Jets knew they had offensive line problems in training camp. Those were seen on the first drive as Rodgers faced pressures on multiple plays.
According to Mike Garafolo with ESPN, Rodgers was helped off the field with a cart.

This is big news for Green Bay Packers fans. They need Rodgers to play 65 percent of the Jets’ offensive snaps to receive a first-round pick from the Jets.
Rodgers dealt with an injury with the Jets this spring. He missed several practices during OTAs with a minor calf strain.
