Aaron Rodgers had a heartbreaking message for teammate and wide receiver Garrett Wilson after the former suffered a season-ending torn Achilles on Monday night.
Sadly, Rodgers’ first season with the Jets lasted just four offensive snaps before he suffered the crushing injury. The Jets went on to defeat the rival Buffalo Bills 22-16 in overtime thanks to a walk-off punt return touchdown from rookie Xavier Gipson.
Speaking on “Bart & Hahn” on 98.7FM ESPN New York, Wilson expressed his heartbreak over Rodgers’ injury. In the interview, Wilson added that after Rodgers’ injury, the four-time MVP said to him, “Sorry kid.”
It’s an unfortunate break for Rodgers and the Jets, who entered the 2023 season with so much hype. Rodgers finally got his long-awaited change of scenery this offseason, and the Jets finally had a superstar quarterback in place to help the compete for a championship.
Rodgers had considered retirement before agreeing to a trade to the Jets. Given the severity of injury, along with the fact he’ll be 40 years of age in December, one can’t help but wonder if Monday night marked the last game of Rodgers’ career.
All the Jets can do now is try and continue to play the inspiring football we saw on Monday night following Rodgers’ injury. New York will try to improve to 2-0 on the young season when they visit the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday.
