New York Jets as head coach Robert Saleh addresses the media about Aaron Rodgers’ potential return and Zach Wilson’s uncertain future with the team.
Aaron Rodgers’ Potential Return and Team Strategy
New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh revealed he has no direct knowledge of Aaron Rodgers‘ potential clearance for the Week 16 game against the Washington Commanders.
According to TMZ Sports, Rodgers could be medically cleared following his September 11 Achilles injury. However, Brian Costello of the New York Post believes Rodgers’ return this season is unlikely, given the Jets’ low playoff prospects.
Zach Wilson’s Trade Rumors and Saleh’s Response
Following Zach Wilson’s impressive performance in the Jets’ 30-6 victory over the Houston Texans, there are rumors of the team considering trading Wilson in the offseason. Saleh did not confirm or deny these reports, indicating such decisions would be left to Jets general manager Joe Douglas.
Aaron Rodgers’ Injury and Recovery
Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a ruptured Achilles early in his Jets career, could achieve the fastest-recorded recovery for this injury if he returns on December 24, merely 104 days post-injury. Despite potential medical clearance, Rodgers’ return to gameplay could depend on the team’s playoff positioning.
