Hopefully Rodgers didn’t insist on the Jets hiring medical personnel who Do Their Own Research [listening to Joe Rogan]:
The Aaron Rodgers era is off to a nightmare of a start in New York. On the Jets‘ first drive of their Monday night matchup against the Buffalo Bills, the veteran quarterback was injured and helped off the field by trainers. After a visit to the blue medical tent, he was carted to the locker room. After initially being labeled as questionable to return with an ankle injury, he was later downgraded to out. The Jets announced that his X-rays were negative.
Rodgers suffered the injury after being sacked by veteran pass rusher Leonard Floyd on a first-and-10 with 11:40 remaining in the first quarter. While it appeared at first that Rodgers was OK, he went back down to the turf while officials stopped play.
OK, but the good news is that the Jets still have the rare luxury of a recent second overall draft pick as their backup QB and a guy who as recently as two years ago stood on the sideline while the team that employed him had a successful passing offense as their OC, so I’m sure things will be fine anyway!

…while we’re here, enjoy this list of the 42 most recent New York Jets QBs. Wilson (“Of all the Jets’ quarterback busts—and there are so, so many—Wilson has to be the biggest. With the second pick in a soon-to-be-legendary 2021 draft class, the Jets selected Wilson, who was considered a fringe prospect until he tore up BYU’s COVID-pandemic-altered 2020 schedule”) somehow still ranks 16th.
