Rodgers said his injury has been “one of the toughest stretches of my life” and underwent surgery this week. The future hall-of-fame quarterback found the silver lining as “the sun rose the next day” and he set off for Los Angeles to get his surgery.
“A lot of sadness, a lot of tears, a lot of frustration, anger… then the sun rose the next day and I found myself in LA and had surgery on Wednesday,” said Rodgers, per Ian Rapoport.
Rodgers admits the odds are “stacked against me” given he’s pushing 40 years old, but accepts the challenge.
“Definitely some odds stacked against me because of age. But I like it. Stack all the odds against me and see what happens,” said Rodgers, via Armando Salguero.
Over the offseason, the Packers traded him to the Jets for a package that included a second-round pick in 2023 and a conditional 2024 second that could become a first. The Packers could’ve received a first-round pick if he played a certain amount of snaps, but that is clearly not going to happen now.
The expectation appears to be that Aaron Rodgers will begin rehabbing from his surgery as soon as possible in order to play for the Jets in 2024.
His 2023 season finishes with one pass thrown for no completions and zero yards and zero touchdowns. He was sacked one time.
