The sports world was shocked when Aaron Rodgers went down with a season-ending injury just four plays into his New York Jets career.

As soon as he went down, there was speculation about how long he would be out. When it was discovered that he had suffered a torn Achilles, speculation then turned to whether or not Rodgers would ever suit up and play football again.

He was contemplating retirement before he decided to join “Gang Green,” but ended up signing a two year deal that would seemingly give him the opportunity to win one last Super Bowl and ride off into the sunset.

We now know that one of those years has been lost, and though it would be easy for Aaron to hang it up, a message sent out on his Instagram cleared his plans up:

“Thank you to every person that has reached out, called, texted, DM’d, connected through a friend, etc. It has meant a ton to me, and I’ll try and get back to all of you soon.

I’m completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin the healing process today.”

The night is darkest before the dawn. And I shall rise yet again. Proud of my guys, 1-0.”

Thankfully, it looks as though Rodgers will rehab his injury and come back to play football again, judging by the “I shall rise again” quote included in his post.

He continued to update fans today by letting everyone know that a surgery he had to repair his Achilles went well, and based on the smile he has in the picture, it seems as though he’s in good spirits.

The message on his Instagram story stated:

“Surgery went great yesterday. Thank you for all the love and prayers and support. And thanks to the G.O.A.T, Dr ElAttrache and his staff for starting me on the road to recovery.”

The NFL is better when Aaron Rodgers is a part of it, so here’s to hoping he has a speedy and full recovery.
