Ex-NFL Doc Reacts To Worrying Aaron Rodgers Injury, Fears It Could Be Really Bad


We’re beginning to get reactions from the medical community regarding Aaron Rodgers’ injury.

On Monday night, Rodgers went down with a lower leg injury in the Jets’ first drive of the game.

Rodgers was carted off the field and is now in a walking boot, awaiting the results of his MRI.

Former NFL doctor and orthopedic surgeon David Chao, better known as “ProFootballDoc,” has seen the video of the injury and believes there’s cause for concern.

After watching the video, Chao fears that Rodgers may have torn his Achilles.

Despite initial MRI results coming back negative on Rodgers’ ankle, Chao says there’s still major cause for concern.

Former NFL player turned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Mark Adickes is also worried about Rodgers’ Achilles.

Update: Dr. Evan Jeffries also fears an Achilles injury for Rodgers.
