REPORT: Aaron Rodgers Is Targeting Return For Playoffs After 'Innovative' Achilles Injury Surgery

Aaron Rodgers season might not be over after all.

According to , The New York Jets quarterback is reportedly “targeting an improbable playoff return” after tearing his achilles in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

Per that report:

The new surgery process is fairly new and is designed to have an athlete “fully recovered” in four months. The new medical breakthrough also gives Rodgers an outside chance to be ready to return in mid-January, which is right around the time the NFL playoffs start.. if the Jets qualify.

While Rodgers has high hopes for a quick return, there are plenty of caveats. Per the report:

For now, the Jets will roll with Wilson under center and so far have not reached out to any veterans with interest to bring them in.

The Jets will travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys in Week 2.
