Keith Olbermann poked fun at Aaron Rodgers after his brutal Achilles injury, claiming the quarterback’s refusal to take the Covid vaccine is to blame. 

Rodgers’ debut for the New York Jets lasted around three minutes before he was sacked and taken out of Monday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

The 39-year-old is due to have an MRI scan on Tuesday amid fears he could miss the entire season. 

‘Another #SuddenLisfranc due to failure to vaccinate,’ the sports and political commentator wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, along with six syringe emojis.

Rodgers hit the headlines two years ago when he said he was ‘immunized’, only to later confirm that he was not vaccinated. Instead, Rodgers claimed that he took part in an ‘immunization process through a holistic doctor.’

Rodgers was sacked by Leonard Floyd of the Buffalo Bills on the fourth snap of a nightmare start to his New York Jets career.

It ended Rodgers’ first game for his new team minutes after it had begun and he will have an MRI scan on Tuesday to find out if it has ended his season, too. 

He was carted away for an X-Ray, which returned negative, but coach Robert Saleh admitted  ‘it’s not good’. There are significant fears it will end his season.

‘Concerning his Achilles, MRI is probably going to confirm what we think is already going to happen,’ Saleh said late Monday night. ‘But it’s not good.’ 

The Jets bounced back to win a remarkable game at MetLife Stadium, with Xavier Gipson clinching victory in overtime with a 65-yard punt return touchdown.
