Jets QB Aaron Rodgers having ‘no issues’ in injury rehab

As the offseason progresses along, the focus around the New York Jets remains on star quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ health.

The Jets hope the future first-ballot Hall of Famer will lead the charge in 2024 after a disappointing first year in New York. Head coach Robert Saleh revealed that Rodgers won’t have any restrictions once OTA practices begin on May 20.

“The guy can still sling it,” Saleh said via ESPN. “Obviously, he’s still working through his rehab, but there are no issues on the trajectory on which he’s going.”

It has been around eight months since he underwent surgery to repair a torn left Achilles.

Although Rodgers has no restrictions, the Jets don’t want to take unnecessary risks with their star quarterback. They will likely ease him back into the fold as he gets his feet back under him.

The Jets hope for his return to the form that cemented him as one of the game’s best quarterbacks. New York will give him extended patience by allowing him to prove that he’s ready to go before next season.

At that same token, the Jets have adjusted their backup quarterback situation this offseason. The team traded former first-round pick Zach Wilson to the Denver Broncos.

Meanwhile, the team inked Tyrod Taylor as the primary backup and drafted Florida State’s Jordan Travis in the fifth round in this year’s draft.

Rodgers is the clear-cut starter, but the team is aiming to have a secure backup plan behind him. Time will tell if he can be prepared to play to start the 2024 campaign.
