Sorry Jets fans, the hits just keep on coming. The latest came on Monday night, when quarterback Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles tendon just four plays into his debut with the team.
The 39-year-old NFL veteran has a torn left Achilles tendon that will require season-ending surgery, New York Jets coach Robert Saleh announced Tuesday.
The 39-year-old four-time NFL MVP had been vocal about his frustrations on the Green Bay Packers. Now, he'll be dropping the No. 12 in exchange for the No. 8 on the Jets.
With Rodgers sidelined by the diagnosis and league protocols on Sunday, the Packers lost 13-7 to the Kansas City Chiefs. He remains at home as part of a league-imposed 10-day quarantine.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback is not vaccinated, but previously said he was "immunized." An NFL spokesman said no doctor for the league ever communicated with Rodgers about the vaccine.
Green Bay would not explicitly confirm whether Rodgers tested positive and would not comment on whether he is vaccinated. Multiple media reports say the reigning NFL MVP is unvaccinated.
