Jets HC Robert Saleh suggested that WR Mike Williams might play limited snaps early this season. He's working back from a torn ACL suffered last September.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to be a full participant in OTAs later this month, HC Robert Saleh said. Rodgers is about eight months removed from his torn Achilles. "Once phase three hits, we're not anticipating any restrictions from what we can and can't do with him," Saleh said. It's been a smooth rehab for Rodgers by all accounts, and he should be ready to roll come Week 1. It's excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson, RB Breece Hall, and the rest of New York's skill-position players.

The Jets are signing WR Mike Williams to a one-year deal worth "up to" $15 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a desperately needed addition for the Jets, who were trotting out guys like Allen Lazard, Xavier Gipson, and Randall Cobb behind Garrett Wilson last year. Williams is coming off a late-September ACL tear but should be ready in plenty of time for the start of the 2024 campaign. He racked up 19 catches and 249 yards in just three games last year and averaged over 68 yards per game in both 2021 and 2022. The 29-year-old should still have plenty of gas left in the tank -- especially as New York's No. 2 WR. Williams should find enough volume even behind Wilson to have a shot at WR3-level fantasy production. And his arrival is excellent news for QB Aaron Rodgers, who's also seen his team bolster its offensive line this offseason.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers told reporters on Monday that he's hoping to play "more than just next year." He admitted that he originally planned on making 2023 his last season when he was traded to the Jets, but "then I got out here, realized how much fun I was having, kinda falling back in love with the game." Rodgers turned 40 in December and is working his way back from a serious injury, so we certainly wouldn't consider him a lock to play in 2025. But the passion is nice to hear. We'll continue to track his rehab from that torn Achilles.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday that QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) won't play again this season. That's no surprise with the 5-9 Jets eliminated from the postseason picture. Rodgers was activated from IR, though, so that he can continue practicing the rest of the way. He should be able to participate in the offseason program and is on track to be ready for the start of the 2024 campaign.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers admitted on the Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday that his Achilles still isn't at 100%. He expects to be there in another few weeks. That's not at all a surprise considering he's just a little more than three months removed from the injury. What would be a surprise is if the 5-9 Jets put Rodgers back on the field this season. With QB Zach Wilson in concussion protocol, QB Trevor Siemian is the favorite to start Sunday's game vs. the Commanders.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is likely to be medically cleared to play in Week 16, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's still unclear if Rodgers will return for a Jets team with a slim chance at the playoffs. But the fact that he's set to be cleared just a little more than three months after tearing his Achilles is borderline miraculous. We're still betting against Rodgers playing again this season, but he'll be ready to go for the 2024 campaign.

A source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is "unlikely" to play again this season. Rodgers got back on the practice field this week -- less than three months after tearing his Achilles. But the thought all along was that he'd only play again if the Jets were still in the playoff hunt. At 4-7, they'd likely need to win out to earn a postseason berth. So we'll be forced to watch more Tim Boyle or Zach Wilson or Trevor Siemian the rest of the way. Rodgers is at least on track to return to save WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall in 2024.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) has been designated to return from IR. It means he'll be back on the practice field this week. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on Sunday that Rodgers is still targeting a Week 16 return -- but we remain skeptical that he'll play again this season for a Jets team without a realistic chance to make the playoffs. We'll keep you updated on the situation. If Rodgers does return, it'd be excellent news for the late-season fantasy prospects of RB Breece Hall and WR Garrett Wilson.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is still hoping to get back on the field for the Week 16 game against the Commanders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. (What QB wouldn't want to play against that pass defense?!) There's a chance that Rodgers returns to practice this coming week, per Rapoport, although getting back on the practice field the following week is considered more likely. This is a bit of a surprise since earlier reports said Rodgers would only return if the Jets were in the playoff hunt. They have less than a 1% chance to make it after Friday's loss to the Dolphins, according to The New York Times' model. But Rodgers is obviously out to prove something with this return from a torn Achilles. And it'd be nice to build some positive momentum heading into 2024. Rodgers would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he does make it back. But it'd be excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson and RB Breece Hall's late-season fantasy value.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' most likely return target from his Achilles injury is Week 16, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears. Rodgers will only return "if he can protect himself" and if the Jets remain in the playoff hunt, Rapoport adds. At 4-5, the Jets would likely need to win at least three of their next five games to stay alive for a playoff spot. Their opponents: Bills, Dolphins, Falcons, Texans, and Dolphins again. We'd still consider Rodgers unlikely to play again this season. And even if he did, he'd be tough to trust as a QB1 in fantasy lineups. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) told NBC's Melissa Stark that his goal is to be back by mid-December. "I know it sounds insane, but if you do a good surgery, have a good patient, it makes this possible," Rodgers said. The Jets play the Texans on December 10 and the Dolphins on December 17. A goal, of course, doesn't necessarily mean that Rodgers will definitely be back this season. Whether the Jets are still alive for a playoff spot will also likely impact whether he returns. Rodgers couldn't be trusted as more than a QB2 that late in the season if he does make it back, so he's only worth stashing in 2-QB and superflex leagues.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) is targeting a return for the NFL playoffs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rodgers underwent an "innovative" surgery on Wednesday "designed to accelerate the normal rehabilitation process," Rapoport writes. The procedure could reportedly have Rodgers back on the field in four months, which would be mid-January. The playoffs start on January 13. Rodgers is still not worth stashing in any redraft fantasy leagues. But, for dynasty owners, it's clear that he's hoping to continue his NFL career.
