Aaron Rodgers broke his silence after sustaining a season ending injury in his first official game as quarterback for the New York Jets.
“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 ❤️,” Rodgers, 39, wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, September 13. “I’m completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love. 💔”
He continued: “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 🛩️.”
