Jets OC Nathaniel Hackett certain Aaron Rodgers will play in ’24

Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has graduated from shock and disbelief, even if the New York Jets play-caller still can’t put his emotions over the season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers into words.”I don’t think there are words to describe it … I just feel horrible for him,” Hackett said Thursday.The Jets had to turn the page at quarterback in real time from Rodgers to Zach Wilson. Hackett spent multiple seasons working with Rodgers in Green Bay and most of the past four months working in lockstep with Rodgers to fine tune New York’s offensive scheme for the 2023 season.Much of that prep work unraveled in four snaps Monday, at which point the four-time league MVP suffered a torn left Achilles tendon. With Rodgers on injured reserve, Wilson and Tim Boyle, another former Packers quarterback, make up the depth chart as the Jets get ready for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.Hackett denied he’s planning to turn Wilson from self-described “gunslinger” to a game manager, a widely held opinion based on head coach Robert Saleh’s assertion that the Jets plan to lean on their championship-caliber defense.
