NFL star Aaron Rodgershas broken his silence about the brutal season-ending injury that happened in his first few plays at an New York Jet.

In August 2023, future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jetscame to a three-year, $112.5 million deal that includes $75 million in fully guaranteed money for 2023 and 2024. Unfortunately, Rodgers’ season with the Jets has already come to an end early as he suffered a ruptured Achilles just four plays into his Jets season debut.

It's been nearly 48 hours since the injury and over 24 hours since the MRI results came back, and Aaron Rodgers is finally speaking out.
