With so much hype going into the season surrounding Aaron Rodgers, oddsmakers were extremely high on the New York Jets and how far they’d ultimately make it. All that hype came crashing down just moments into their first game after Aaron Rodgers went down with a torn Achilles.
Now eight weeks into the season, the Jets sit at a 4-3 record which is by far much better than many could have asked for considering that’ve slid Zach Wilson back in as their QB1. With their somewhat successful season, oddsmakers have specials out surrounding them as a team.
Two of those specials come in on Aaron Rodgers and if he’ll play again this season. The first of them actually holds the shortest odds of all of them with 500 odds that he will play again this season. The other, which sits at 2500 odds, is for Rodgers to suit up for at least one snap on November 19 against the Buffalo Bills.
Neither of those scenarios should be counted out being that in typical Aaron Rodgers fashion, he’s opted for an alternative procedure on his Achilles that takes a fraction of the time to recover than the normal route that an NFL player would go.
His decision to go an alternative route should come as no surprise. During the COVID-19 season when players were required to get the vaccine to play, he pushed for an alternative, natural medicine that he claims acted the same as one of the COVID vaccines.
Fast track to his alternative treatment on his Achilles, the doctor who performed the surgery, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, said that this treatment can have athletes return to action in as soon as four months rather than being shut down for an entire season.
|Week 10||@ Las Vegas Raiders|
|Week 11||@ Buffalo Bills|
|Week 12||Vs. Miami Dolphins|
|Week 13||Vs. Atlanta Falcons|
|Week 14||Vs. Houston Texans|
|Week 15||@ Miami Dolphins|
|Week 16||Vs. Washington Commanders|
|Week 17||@ Cleveland Browns|
|Week 18||@ New England Patriots|
If that were the case, his injury occurred in mid September which would put him on track to return between early and the middle of December which is just weeks before the playoffs are set to begin eliminating the 2500 odds of him getting back on the field in time for the Bills game in mid November.
However, if the Jets are still in contention for a playoff spot, you have to imagine that Rodgers will look to ramp up his recovery and help lead them into the postseason which certainly shines a light on their 5000 Super Bowl odds which are currently offering tremendous value.
