New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered an Achilles tendon tear, the NFL confirmed on Tuesday, in a catastrophic injury that’ll sideline him for the rest of 2023 — and could potentially end his career.

Rodgers, who turns 40 later this year, had spent this entire career with the Green Bay Packers before coming to the Jets, in hopes of revitalizing the franchise that’s endured seven consecutive losing seasons.
