NY Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers has exited the game with an injury on his very first drive with his new team. Rodgers was immediately replaced by former No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson.

The four-time MVP was sacked on a 1st-and-10 play in the first quarter by outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, and after momentarily standing up, he sat back down with an apparent left injury.

The Jets have not announced the details of the injury at this time but we will continue to update this article once more information is made available. All we know is that the cart has come onto the field for the future Hall of Famer.

Rodgers has been replaced by the quarterback he was brought in to replace this offseason. Wilson started nine games last season, finishing with six touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The former second-overall pick struggled mightily through the first two seasons of his career, but he now might be asked to fill in for the foreseeable future if Rodgers' injury is serious.

Stay tuned for future updates about the Jets' star quarterback.

Aaron Rodgers injury update

The Jets have announced that Rodgers is questionable to return with an ankle injury. Rodgers was taken to the locker room on a cart and underwent X-rays, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Rodgers has since been ruled OUT with an ankle injury. The expectation is that Rodgers will undergo an MRI tomorrow and the initial fear is that he suffered a torn Achilles.
