NFL New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (39) will not be able to play for the remainder of the season.

Local media such as ‘ESPN’ quoted a source in the early morning of the 13th (Korean time) and reported that Rodgers was diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left foot and would not be able to play for the remainder of the season.

Rogers appeared as the starting quarterback in the season opener against the Buffalo Bills held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey the day before, but was injured after four plays.

While trying to avoid the sack of opposing defensive end Leonard Floyd, his left foot got caught in the grass, his body twisted, and he suffered an injury in the process.

He left the stadium on a cart, and Jets coach Robert Saleh said at the post-game press conference, “It’s not in good condition.”

Rogers previously transferred from the Green Bay Packers to the Jets through a trade last April.

At the time, the Jets gave up the 13th, 42nd, 207th, and second round picks in the 2024 draft in exchange for Rodgers and the 15th overall and 170th overall picks in the 2023 draft.

This second round pick in the 2024 draft was subject to the condition that it would be converted to a first round pick if Rodgers played more than 65% of this season’s schedule.카지노사이트

With this injury, that didn’t happen.

In his debut match for his new team, he suffered an injury early on, leaving behind several records. Citing an investigation by Elias Sports, ESPN introduced that this was the first time since at least 1950 that the starting quarterback attempted only one pass in the first game of the season.

In addition, he became the first quarterback since Joe Gasparella (0-2) in 1951 to start the season opener and not complete a single pass throughout the season.

The Jets won 22-16 over Buffalo despite Rodgers’ injury. Quarterback Jack Wilson, who played instead, led the victory by recording 140 yards of passing. The Jets plan to give him the role of starting quarterback.
