Aaron Rodgers’s Recovery Progress
Although this is just speculation, there is a chance that it can become true. Rodgers has shown incredible strides during his recovery, so good that even doctors are scratching their heads wondering how he has been recovering so quickly. Rodgers has been seen walking around the Jets facility and even throwing the ball during the team’s pregame.

Usually, it would take more than an entire season for a torn Achilles to be healed, but it looks like Rodgers has other plans. He was injured in the first game of the regular season on the very first drive. Since then, the team has had Zach Wilson under center, and Jets fans are crying for someone else to be under center. New York has a great defense, and they have the weapons on offense, but Wilson has not been great as the quarterback. If Rodgers were to come back in December, they could very well be a top-10 team in the league.
Impact On The New York Jets
The Jets are currently sitting at 4-3 through the first eight weeks of the 2023 season, and are in third place in the competitive AFC East. If this post is true, it would mean Rodgers would come back on December 28 to face off against the Cleveland Browns.
Wilson has been able to scrape by some big wins for the team, but it is mainly because of the stout defense that the Jets possess. Rodgers being back in the lineup would most likely make New York a playoff contender if they can pull out a few more wins. For now, this looks like a little bit of a reach, but it is certainly an intriguing theory to consider.
