Jets QB Aaron Rodgers suffered torn Achilles vs. Bills, will miss ...

Aaron Rodgers' MRI on Tuesday revealed the Jets QB suffered a torn left Achilles in Monday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills and he will miss the remainder of the season.

Initially deemed an ankle injury that came up negative after the X-rays, Rodgers' Achilles was the real culprit.

The Jets haven't put together a winning season since 2015 or clinched a playoff berth since 2010. Rodgers acquired in a massive offseason trade with the Green Bay Packers, who will now receive a second-round pick next year following Rodgers' season-ending injury (Green Bay was set to receive a first-rounder if Rodgers played in at least 65 percent of snaps this year).

That trade was envisioned to end New York's playoff drought, but now, once more, Wilson will be looked on to be the savior.

The BYU product is 8-14 as a starter over his previous two seasons. The common theme in 2022 was that Wilson's poor play held back a New York squad bolstered by a tenacious defense.

New York's defense is still outstanding, as evidenced by Monday's performance. Running back Breece Hall looked amazing in his return from a torn ACL, and there are winning pieces all around Wilson.

The Jets are technically 1-0 with Rodgers as a starter. Will their grand expectations crumble in his absence, or will they be able to rally without him as they did Monday?

A high-profile matchup with the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2 will be the first confirmation of what lies ahead for Gang Green.
