It’s official: Aaron Rodgers’ season is over, and his career could be too.

In the very first ‘Monday Night Football’ possession for the New York Jets against the Buffalo Bills, the superstar quarterback suffered an injury that was suspected to be a season-ending torn Achilles.

Fast forward to Tuesday and we now have confirmation — Rodgers did indeed tear his Achilles and is out for the entire 2023 campaign, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. And not just that, but Schefter also dropped the bombshell that this could be the end of Rodgers’ career as well.

“An MRI confirmed today that Aaron Rodgers officially tore his Achilles on the fourth play of his Jets’ career. Rodgers’ season now, officially, is over,” Schefter reported. “There already are questions about whether his Hall-of-Fame career is, too.”

I told you this was coming when I broke the news about his injury, and here we are.

Talk about an anti-climax. Ever since Aaron Rodgers was traded to the New York Jets back in April, there was a ton of hype surrounding the team. Believe me, I know as both a sports blogger and Miami Dolphins fan, it was like everyday I was seeing something about New York. And then for it to end like this? On the very first possession of the season?

It truly is the perfect representation of the dysfunctional Jets, which I got into deeply here Monday night. (RELATED: Aaron Rodgers Leaves ‘Monday Night Football’ With Injury In Jets’ First Possession, Could Be Out For Rest Of Season)

And I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying the misery of New York fans.
