Aaron Rodgers admitted he experienced "a lot of sadness, tears, anger and dark frustration" after what happened on Monday Night Football. On Monday, Rodgers suited up for his first official New York Jets game. Four offensive snaps into his first game with the Jets, Rodgers sustained a torn Achilles tendon.
Rodgers left the game and Jets fans were left in absolute shock and disbelief. But it's not only Jets fans who were stunned as the entire NFL community couldn't believe what happened to the Jets and Rodgers after many months of extreme excitement and Super Bowl aspirations.
"Monday was an amazing day to start, amazing night running on the field with the flag, electric. And then it turned into one of the toughest 24-hour stretches I've had in my life, for sure. Lot of sadness, lot of tears, lot of dark frustration and anger, all the gamut of emotions.
But then the sun rose the next day and I found myself in L.A. and had surgery on Wednesday and since then I've been feeling better," Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show.
Rodgers: There were moments of just sobbing
"I just care about it so much it just hit me like a ton of bricks for 24 hours.
There were moments of just sobbing," Rodgers admitted. On Tuesday, it was reported that Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury. But after undergoing surgery on Wednesday, Rodgers didn't close the doors on potentially returning this season. "I think what I'd like to say is ...
Give me the doubts. Give me the timetables. Give me all the things that you think can, should or will happen. Because all I need is that one little extra percent of inspiration. That's all I need. Give me your timetables, give me your doubts, give me your prognostications and then watch what I do," Rodgers said.
