Is Aaron Rodgers Coming Back This Year?


Jack Straw

Recommended Posts

If anyone can do it.. This guy has a lot of fight in him. I’m sure they told him he can’t play on a broken thumb on his throwing hand. He didnt miss a game. 
 

Is it likely ? No. But the fact that is going to fight like heck, shows the inspiring warrior he is. Hopefully he can continue to fire up the players with that type of “ never quit “message.

September 11th (achilles tear date) to January 11th is 4 months. We all know that 39 year old's don't heal like young athletes. Conventional wisdom says that this is an impossibility.  However, we all know and appreciate that Aaron Rodgers is anything but conventional. With stem cell therapy and other unconventional approaches, is this even possible?

I'm wildly skeptical, obviously. But is it possible for the achilles to "heal" by month 3, and for him to regain 85% of his strength/mobility by the 4 month mark?

I asked Perplexity.AI a variation of this question, and here's the response:

Stem cell therapy has shown promising results in healing Achilles tendon tears faster and more effectively. This treatment involves injecting concentrated stem cells, usually derived from the patient's bone marrow, into the injured tendon[1]. Patients who undergo stem cell therapy for Achilles tendon injuries have reported significant improvements within 3 months, and many have returned to full activity within 3 to 6 months[2]. In some cases, stem cell therapy has helped patients avoid surgery altogether[2].

A study comparing allogenic-derived stem cells to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) found that stem cell therapy led to faster recovery in Achilles tendon disorders[6]. Another study concluded that the use of stem cells could be more effective for tendon healing than PRP[3]. However, it is important to note that full recovery can still take several months, with most patients reporting pain and symptom relief about three weeks after treatment[4].

In summary, stem cell therapy has demonstrated potential in reducing recovery time and improving outcomes for patients with Achilles tendon injuries. However, more research is needed to fully understand the long-term effects and optimal treatment protocols for this therapy[3][6].

Not likely.  Even if he could come back it’s pretty dependent on how well ( or badly) Zach is doing. If the team and Zach are doing well then why would he get thrown in. And if team is doing poorly why bother. The only scenarios would be if Zach was having a late season swoon and the jets still had a chance of making the playoffs and Rodgers could shake things up.

I'm on a plane to Dallas I just saw the clip from McAfee... anyone see the whole interview?

Yes, I saw the entire interview.

Aaron Rodgers teased that he was going to shock everyone with his recovery. AJ Hawk and Pat McAfee pressed him on whether he was returning this year, and Rodgers' responded by making no promises but hinting that this year was his motivation. Skip to the 5:30 mark and watch for a minute or so and you can get the gist of what he said:

Additional Studies:
There are studies on the efficacy of stem cell therapy for Achilles tendon injuries. One trial found that allogenic-derived stem cells led to a faster recovery compared with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in patients with Achilles tendinopathy[1]. Another randomized controlled trial (RCT) reported that both cell therapy and control groups showed significant pain reduction in Achilles tendinopathies, but more research is needed to draw definitive conclusions[2]. A preclinical study on rats found that Achilles tendons injected with bone marrow cells displayed greater strength than tendons treated with other stem cells or control[4].

In summary, there are studies suggesting that stem cell therapy may help heal Achilles tendon tears faster, but more research is needed to fully understand the long-term effects and optimal treatment protocols for this therapy.

Ironically, I was talking to my friend about this the other day. Given Rodgers's penchant for "alternative medicine" (please don't turn this into a political discussion), I could see him going to a place like Bioxcellerator in Colombia for treatment. 

Bioxcellerator is a place a lot of pro athletes go to for cutting edge treatment because the laws are more relaxed in those countries and they can treat you with more and better quality stem cells than you can get legally in the US. Bioxcellerator is not the only company as there are other companies in other countries offering similar treatments.

I can absolutely see Rodgers exploring this sort of treatment to see if it accelerates his return to the field. Obviously I have no frigging clue whether this is realistic or not, but it is interesting nonetheless.

Should be no problem finding Jets fans to mule whatever #8 wants back into the U.S.

Medicine is advancing at light speed these days.  Between advance therapies, robotics, nanotechnology, computer aided procedures I guess you never know.  AR has more money than God, so remember, he may have access to therapies that the average person would never have access to.  What you read on the internet is based on typical, average Joe procedures and rehab

From Florio, "Terrell Suggs returned for the Ravens in late October after having Achilles surgery in early May of 2012 and Rams running back Cam Akers returned in Week 18 of the 2021 season after tearing his Achilles in July. A similar timeline for Rodgers would be in the divisional round of the playoffs and it’s hard to imagine the Jets making a quarterback change if they’ve advanced that far, but there’s a lot that has to happen for that to even be a conversation."
