Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery on Wednesday for a torn Achilles tendon.
The four-time league MVP posted a post-surgery photo, smiling despite the situation. Dr. Neal El-Atrache, team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Rams, performed the surgery on Rodgers in Los Angeles.
“Yesterday’s surgery went well,” Rogers wrote. “Thank you for all the love, prayers, and support. And thank you to Dr. El Atrache and his staff for putting me on the road to recovery.”
Rodgers was injured on the fourth play of his Jets debut while attempting to spin out of a sack by Bills defensive end Leonard Floyd. As Rodgers’ body twisted, his left foot appeared to be stuck in the grass. Mr. Rogers stood up, took a limping step, and sat down, realizing the seriousness of the situation.
The Jets placed Rodgers on injured reserve on Tuesday.
Jets coach Robert Saleh said this week that’s what will happen.I’d be shocked if this is how it’s done he’s going out. ”However, Mr. Rodgers has not mentioned his own future.
