A rejuvenated Aaron Rodgers will lead the Jets to the AFC Championship game 

He’s been very cagey when it comes to naming a return date, but he’s out of the boot and throwing before games. It usually takes 4-6 months to recover from a ruptured Achilles tendon, which means Rodgers won’t return until the second week of January, just in time for the Wildcard round.

Rodgers had a modified procedure with the addition of a “speed bridge.” which may allow him to return slightly quicker than expected. But with their defense, they might not need to rush him back.
