“Bro how is this even possible he just tore his Achilles not even 2 months ago!? ?,” one fan stated on the New York Jets social media post, as another expressed, “I stubbed my toe 7 weeks ago and can’t walk as well as him”.

This is not the first time Rodgers walked around without crutches. The Blast reported a few weeks ago that he arrived at MetLife and was even tossing the football around with teammates. He was also seen walking around the locker room without the assistance of crutches.

Aaron Rodgers already made it known that he plans to play for the New York Jets again as just days after his surgery, he said “I think what I’d like to say is, give me the doubts,” on ESPN’s “The Pat McAfee Show.” “Give me the timetables. Give me all the things that you think can, should or will happen because all I need is that one little extra percent of inspiration. That’s all I need.”

“So give me your doubts, give me your prognostications and then watch what I do,” Rodgers added.

The Jets head coach Robert Saleh spoke out after Rodgers underwent his surgery, stating he hopes Aaron Rodgers will still make appearances around the club to help mentor and coach quarterback Zach Wilson, who has taken over the starting position. “I think it’s essential,” the coach said at the time.

He added, “I think it’s important for him. Mental health and healing, I think that’s very important. But his presence, his words… As I said, he’s as much a football coach as a player, and just having his presence, thoughts, words, and leadership, I think anyone would want that.”

And Rodgers has been doing just that -- showing up at the Jets games and helping coach Zach Wilson.
