The Atlanta Falcons‘ season has been somewhat of a roller coaster.
They are currently going through a quarterback crisis, starting the year with Desmond Ridder and now turning the ball over to Taylor Heinicke.
One of their best players, Grady Jarrett, recently tore his ACL, ending his season early.
While this was a disappointing moment for this team, Jarrett recently shared a positive update about his ACL surgery.
Jarrett posted a photo on Twitter thanking everyone in his life who has supported him to this point.
Thank you to all my family, friends, fans, supporters and my Brothers! For the support and well wishes, as I conquer this next challenge. I feel the love and prayers🙏🏾 In Due Time, Best is yet to come. pic.twitter.com/nVtUq4G9XI

While his 2023 season might be over, Jarrett seems confident that he can get back on the field when he is back to full health.
However, Jarrett is 30 years old, and his time in the NFL was numbered before suffering this injury.
It will be interesting to see how the veteran bounces back from a severe injury given his age.
Younger players have had a relatively easy time returning to the league after tearing their ACLs lately.
Surgeries have only gotten better as technology has advanced.
ACL tears used to be a death sentence for athletes, but that is not the case anymore.
While Jarrett might have a longer road to recovery than some of his younger counterparts, he seems determined to try and make a return as soon as possible.
The Falcons are a mostly young team that is working hard to grow and develop as a well-rounded unit.
Jarrett’s on-field presence will continue to be missed throughout the year as he works on recovering.NEXT: Falcons HC Gives Surprising Response To A Bijan Robinson Question
