James said, “Get well ASAP 8!,” sending Rodgers some words of encouragement.
Throughout his career, especially in recent years, James has struggled with injuries of his own.
He knows what it is like to be away from his team due to injury, feeling for Rodgers during this tough time.
Many pundits have suggested that Rodgers should retire now, as an Achilles injury is no joke, and he is not getting any younger.
While this used to be a death sentence for athlete’s careers, doctors have figured out the best ways to treat this injury.
Rodgers will likely utilize some of the nation’s top doctors in hopes of getting back to the playing field in 2024.
There are several factors at play with Rodgers’ injury, the most pressing being the current state of the Jets’ offense.
He was supposed to be the quarterback the Jets have been waiting for, as many believed they were an elite QB away from greatness.
Rodgers will now watch from the sidelines, hoping to see a miracle take place in the Jets’ offense under Wilson.
