AARON Rodgers was pictured on Monday Night Football for the first time since tearing his Achilles tendon.
The NFL star suffered the season-ending injury on the first drive of the New York Jets’ 22-16 win over the Buffalo Bills.
Rodgers, 39, had to be helped off the field and then carted to the X-ray room after he was sacked by Bills defensive end Leonard Floyd on his fourth play of the night.
