Aaron Rodgers suffered a devastating injury blow in his New York Jets debut.
His first appearance was short and brutal as the superstar quarterback went off with a suspected torn Achilles on the opening drive.
Rodgers only joined the Jets in the off-season in a blockbuster trade from the Green Bay Packers.
The NFL community sent messages of support, including his fellow quarterbacks.
Patrick Mahomes sent a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, but had to use the edit button after getting a painful punctuation lesson.
He initially wrote: “Hate that man… Praying for the best.”
But the Kansas City Chiefs star had to edit that message to make sure it was clear he did not hate Rodgers.
Mahomes edited it to say: “Hate that, man… Praying for the best.”
He even made light of it with a further message that said: “Knew I was going to need the edit button one of these days.”
Despite Rodgers exiting the game in the very first series of his career in New York, the Jets went on to beat the Buffalo Bills in a stunning match.
The game went to overtime with a 22-16 victory being clinched in a sensational punt return.
For the 39-year-old Rodgers, however, it is expected to be confirmed on Tuesday that his season is over.
Given his age, some have raised doubts over the superstar’s future in the NFL.
“Concerned with his Achilles, MRI is probably going to confirm what we think is already going to happen,’ Jets head coach Robert Saleh. “But it’s not good.”
