Afterwards, Rodgers expressed his appreciation for all the support he’s received and as well as his heartache over the injury taking him out of his debut season with the Jets.
“Thank you to every person that has reached out, called, texted, DM’d, connected through a friend, etc,” he wrote on Instagram Sept. 13. “It has meant a ton to me, and I’ll try and get back to all of you soon. I’m completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin the healing process today.”
The four-time MVP also noted he was proud of his teammates for winning the game and hinted that this isn’t the end of his NFL career. “The night is darkest before the dawn,” he added. “And I shall rise yet again.”
Zach Wilson will return as starting quarterback in Rodgers’ absence. The team’s next game will be against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 17
