Rodgers appears to have suffered a left leg injury against the Buffalo Bills

When the Green Bay Packers traded Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets, it touched off a frenzy of expectations around the AFC East team. The Jets were featured on , and many in the football media world pointed to New York as the team to beat in the division. It made sense, given how the young roster performed a season ago, with less-than-optimal quarterback play. Dropping Rodgers into that lineup? That could be special.

Rodgers made his debut for the Jets against the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football, and he was helped off the field during the Jets’ first possession, and taken straight to the medical tent.

Rodgers was evaluated, and eventually ruled out for the rest of the game:

After Rodgers was injured a cart was then brought to the medical tent, and the veteran quarterback was taken to the locker room.

Not to scare anyone, but…

It looked like Aaron Rodgers’ left calf trembled, which could indicate Achilles.

He had dealt with a calf strain in camp.
He had to be helped off of the field by trainers.

Rodgers was replaced by Zach Wilson, the team’s former first-round selection. But this image of head coach Robert Saleh as the switch was made is certainly worth a thousand words:
