    I severed my Achilles in March 2022 and I’m still walking with a cane.

      Hello Chris. Sorry for your injury. Did you get surgery to repair it

    Bad Karma. You get brittle as you age, this should teach the NFL teams not to invest in old players.

    I’m a life long Packer Fan. I bought the NFL Ticket for the 1st time this year so I could watch the Jets Games.
    No Refunds!

    You couldn’t find an Orthopaedic Surgeon to comment on the injury. This is written by a family doctor who has never done surgery on an ankle in her life. Most of what she says is accurate but it would have meant so much more coming from an expert who does surgery. Very poor!

      Fred, My career includes a position as assistant surgeon to a hand and foot surgeon. I know my way around an ankle. Thank you for your comment.

    At least he didn’t show decline on the field like so many others who won’t give into father time. He has had a great career, and has owned my Cowboys and Bears.

    I saw the muscle pop up on the injured leg video. (Little scary to watch). It appears to have snapped like a rubber band. I’m still a little confused on one item, is the muscle completely separated from the heal of the foot. If so, how is it possible to grow back on its on, without
    surgery re-attachment.

      Thank you for your comment. The tendon does not separate from the muscle or the heel bone. The tendon itself ruptures. In surgery, the two fragmented ends are sewn together. Without surgery, the other structures of the ankle, and immobilizing the ankle, keeps the fragmented ends roughly in contact. Hopefully, they grow together, although they are not always stable and reinjury rate is higher (tears again). Not doing surgery is for people who are either too unhealthy or poor candidates for surgery, or if they are very sedentary.

    First I would like to say how sorry we are ,the wife and I, that this happened to Aaaron Roger’s. All so to all the Jets players like you we were excited about this season. My wife is bed ridden and she loves watching Aaaron Rogers play. We have watched 53 super bowls together. So you know how excited we were when Aaron came to the Jets. We have the 50 inch TV set up in front of her bed waiting to cheer the jets all the way to the super bowl. God be with you Aaron.

      I’m sorry your plans didn’t work out, I’m sure Aaron is sorry, too. I appreciate that you graciously wish him well.
