During his appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Aaron Rodgers opened up about the brutal Achilles injury that he suffered against the Buffalo Bills during Monday Night Football.
Not only did Rodgers say that the 24 hours after the injury was among the “toughest times” in his life and confirm his intentions to play next season, but he also discussed what his rehab plan might look like
While discussing the different “modalities” of rehab that he’s explored in recent days, Rodgers mentioned that the sound of dolphins making love could have healing properties.
“There’s ideas that some of the noises from the dolphins when they’re lovemaking — the frequency of that is actually healing to the body,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers’ insight about dolphins was just one of many headline-grabbing moments from his first post-injury interview, as he also called on the NFL world to “give him their doubts” so he can use it as motivation.
“Give me your doubts and prognostications and watch what I do… stack all the odds against me and see what happens,” a defiant Rodgers said.
Following the Achilles tear on Monday, Rodgers flew to Los Angeles and had surgery on Wednesday.
While he stopped short of making any promises to Jets fans, Rodgers implied that it was a goal of his to potentially rehab quickly enough to be healthy for the postseason should Gang Green qualify for the playoffs.
“Anything is possible,” Rodgers said when asked by McAfee’s co-host AJ Hawk about potentially playing this season.
Rodgers’ debut with the Jets lasted just four snaps, as he went down with the Achilles tear without even completing a pass. According to Rodgers, he knew that he had torn his Achilles as soon as it happened.
Now turning to Zach Wilson as their starting quarterback, the Jets will be heading down to Dallas this weekend to take on the Cowboys in their home opener.
