Aaron Rodgers does not appear to be a person who recently underwent Achilles surgery.
A few hours before their game on Sunday night, Rodgers walked the sideline of the New York Jets while using crutches, waving to his teammates, coaches, and members of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fans couldn’t believe how quickly he was moving considering that he had just undergone surgery.
Google says most people are put in a cast or walking boot for 12 weeks after Achilles surgery.
But Aaron Rodgers had his surgery just two and a half weeks ago and is already walking like this.
It's crazy that he might actually be back this season.pic.twitter.com/G2aCzUxSlk

According to rumors, Rodgers underwent a “speed bridge” treatment, which expedites the typical recuperation process.
During a recent interview on “The Pat McAfee Show,” he refused to provide specifics regarding the procedure or his recovery, saying only:
“Some of the things that were reported about the type of surgery I received were factual. Some of it wasn’t fully accurate.”
After undergoing surgery two and a half weeks ago, Rodgers had been recovering and receiving rehabilitation at home in Malibu, California. The four-time NFL MVP made his first public appearance at MetLife Stadium on September 11 against Buffalo, four snaps after tearing his left Achilles tendon.
On Sunday night, Zach Wilson, who has been struggling, will make his third consecutive start in place of Aaron Rodgers.
