Don’t inform Aaron Rodgers he’s provided for the season.

After bursting his Achilles simply 4 snaps into his Jets launching last Monday night versus the Buffalo Bills, and by all prognostics out for the remainder of the year, Rodgers is currently preparing his go back to the field which he believes can be faster instead of later on.

The 39-year-old quarterback went through surgical treatment on Wednesday in Los Angeles and, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the popular orthopedic cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, carried out an ingenious treatment created to “accelerate the normal rehabilitation process from such an injury.”

Placing an internal brace called an Achilles “speed bridge” on Rodgers’ torn Achilles, the surgical treatment apparently safeguards the repair work and opens the possibility of an earlier return. In reality, the fairly brand-new treatment is “designed to have an athlete fully recovered in as little as four months”, per Rapoport and Pelissero.

If that held true, that would indicate Rodgers might possibly be back by mid-January, in the nick of time for the playoffs ought to the Jets make it that far.

“There’s a lot of different ideas about the overall length of the rehab, I think what I’d like to say is, just because nobody’s ever done it in a certain way doesn’t mean it’s not possible,” Rodgers stated. “I definitely have some odds stacked against me based on age, but I like it. Stack all the odds up against me and see what happens. My entire focus and dedication is about acquiring the most information and adding to what I’ve already put together as a pretty damn good rehab plan that’s going to, I think, shock some people.”

Of course, as Rodgers stated, the treatment and rehabilitation are no warranties, particularly at his age (he turns 40 in December).

However, in an effort to come back method prior to anyone might have anticipated, Rodgers may likewise get platelet-rich plasma injections, a treatment other NFL gamers have actually gone through, consisting of Russell Wilson last season.

Regardless when Rodgers does return, if at all, Gang Green is dedicated to choosing Zach Wilson at quarterback for the foreseeable future. That begins Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys.
