Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he "felt sick" over the Aaron Rodgers injury situation. On Monday Night Football, Rodgers suited up in his first regular season game for the Jets. In just the fourth offensive snap, Rodgers took a hit and he sustained a season-ending torn Achilles tendon injury.

When Rodgers agreed to come to New York, the Jets' expectations massively increased for this season and they made it clear they were going for a Super Bowl. Now that Rodgers is out for the season, some think the Jets' Super Bowl chances basically ended moments into their first game of the season.

"I was sick for everybody. We're all sick. You don't want to see that," Jones said on 105.3. The Fan, via Jon Machota.

The entire NFL world was in complete shock when Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury just moments into the Jets' first game of the season.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he felt the most for Rodgers in this situation. "I feel more for Aaron than anyone. He has invested so much into this organization and this journey he's embarked on and wanting to be a part of what we've got going on here.

How much he has invested into not only this organization but his teammates, himself, this fanbase, this city. I have a lot of emotions for him and for us. It's really all about him. I don't look at it as 'woe is me.' I think guys are excited to step up and continue the things we have been building, but a lot of hurt for Aaron," Saleh said.

Also, Saleh confirmed he and the team definitely want Rodgers to still be around. "We all want him here. We all want him to be connected and I think he wants to be here. We will give him time to breathe and digest everything;" Saleh said of Rodgers.
