A lot of us out there thought that when Aaron Rodgers went down with his torn Achilles in Week 1, that there was no way he'd return this season. If anything, folks were thinking he could end up retiring due to the serious injury.

Now, though, it's looking like we could actually see Rodgers back on the gridiron this winter. On Tuesday, head coach Robert Saleh announced that the 21-day window has opened for Rodgers to return to practice.

This is something that no one was expecting, but Rodgers has certainly left the door open for a return. In the coming weeks, we'll have to wait and see if he can get himself healthy, but Jets fans are definitely fired up right now.
