Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) said he’s “attacking” his rehab.
“There’s nothing normal about how I’m attacking this rehab,” Rodgers, 39, told ESPN this week. Rodgers, who tore his Achilles on September 11 four snaps into the Jets’ season opener against the Bills, said he’s already months ahead of a normal Achilles rehab. Positive thinking, Rodgers said, could put him back on the playing field late this season. “This is just my mindset,” Rodgers said. “I believe in the power of intention. I believe in prayer. I believe in your mental status and the power of will. I believe in making room for the miraculous to happen.” Zach Wilson would have to keep the Jets in the postseason hunt if Rodgers were to have a reason to rush his return to action. It’s possible, if unlikely, Rodgers could suit up in January.
