Ramaswamy: America ‘rooting’ for Aaron Rodgers
Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said America is “rooting” for New York Jets star Aaron Rodgers, just a day after the veteran quarterback suffered a season-ending injury.
“Man cannot be perfected without trials. @AaronRodgers12 has faced hardship before & come back stronger,” Ramaswamy wrote in a Tuesday post on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The conservative entrepreneur shared a photo of Rodgers running onto the field at MetLife Stadium holding an American flag.
“Confident he’ll do so again,” Ramaswamy added. “America’s rooting for your return #8”
Rodgers suffered a serious injury on his fourth snap as a member of the Jets in their season opener against the divisional rival Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.
The 39-year-old quarterback’s left foot appeared to get caught on the turf as his body twisted during an attempt to spin out of a sack, according to ESPN.
An MRI on Tuesday revealed that Rodgers, a four-time league MVP, tore his left Achilles tendon, a season-ending injury.
Rodgers, 39, was acquired by the Jets via trade earlier this year after spending his first 18 seasons in the league with the Green Bay Packers.
He has faced controversy in recent years over his stance against COVID-19 vaccines and mandates.
