INDIANAPOLIS – Week 1 of the new NFL season provided plenty of headlines, but none bigger than the injury to New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The four-time league MVP tore his left Achilles tendon on the fourth play with his new team on Monday night. Zach Wilson, the team’s 2021 first-round pick, will be the Jets’ starting quarterback again when they visit Dallas on Sunday.
