Good morning, gang!  It’s your ambassador of athletics Davey Mac here…and we’ve got an exciting Sports Report for ya today!  Baseball, basketball, hockey: all in the news!  But first!

Did you hear about the interview that Aaron Rodgers gave yesterday?  In the appearance, Rodgers said that he is “attacking rehab” and that he believes he can return this season.  Rodgers stated: “I believe in making room for the miraculous to happen.”

New York Jets v New York Giants

Of course, Rodgers hasn’t played since he went down just four snaps into the very first game of the Jets’ season in September.  It was a devastating blow for the organization and fanbase.

But still…it’s pretty impressive that Rodgers feels he can return so quickly from such a serious injury.  A torn Achilles almost always keeps the athlete on the sidelines for a year…and sometimes guys end their career after an Achille injury.  But Rodgers feels he only may need a few months.

It should be interesting to see!  I’m sure fans of Gang Green would love to have Rodgers over Zach Wilson…but can it be done?  We’ll have to watch and find out!  I’m Davey Mac…now on to the Scoreboard!
