It’s been an exciting offseason for the New York Jets as Aaron Rodgers might be the quarterback they need to make a deep playoff run.
However, there is still some concerns revolving around star running back Breece Hall. He’s trying to return from a torn ACL injury and it’s unclear when he’ll return.
But it sounds like head coach Robert Saleh is rather optimistic about Hall’s recovery. In fact, according to Ari Meirov, Saleh believes Hall could be ready for the season opener.

At the end of the day, Breece Hall is returning from a serious injury. Perhaps he can be ready enough to dress down for Week 1. However, there’s a solid chance he’s not ready to go by then either.
Football fans seem to be a bit more on the cautious side, as they remain skeptical of Robert Saleh’s optimism.
Don’t expect him to be the same right away

No lies detected.
Robert Saleh is not a Doctor

Hopefully, the Jets don’t rush Breece Hall back from injury.
He's going to be a shell of himself until the end of the season if he makes it. The ACL recovery is all about time and for a RB, it's at least a year to 15 months before you feel normal.

Saleh’s track record only adds onto the skepticism.
FWIW Saleh’s history of injury predictions is, dare I say, really bad https://t.co/KfkNRbnTRz

For now, Hall’s projected return is right around the season opener. But it’s not clear whether or not he’ll be ready to go.
If anything, the Jets should be patient and allow Breece Hall to make a full recovery.
Especially now with Aaron Rodgers leading the way under center.
With that said, we’ll see how it all plays out. Luckily, there is still three months before the start of the 2023 season. So, Breece Hall still has time on his side.
Keep an eye out for more updates regarding Hall, as his return is highly anticipated for the Jets.
