But this week’s appearance on the Pat McAfee show did not bring the most optimistic update from the 39-year-old.
‘It has been a tough week of rehab with some smaller gains and it’s been more of a grind the last week or so,’ Rodgers said. ‘I’m not walking without a limp yet.
‘I don’t quite have the strength in my calf to be able to walk without a limp yet. I am competitive, I want to be walking without a limp, so there is some frustration there.’
He added: ‘This is a tough rehab, for sure, because there’s so many little muscles that you got to wake up. Not just the calf muscles and foot muscles. Everything needs to work as a unit.
‘You’ve got to be careful walking too much with a limp. The goal isn’t to stretch the Achilles, the goal is to stress the Achilles.’
Without Rodgers, the Jets head into Sunday’s game with a 3-3 record. The Giants, meanwhile, are in need of victory having lost five of their opening seven games.
