Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, during an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” Tuesday, talked about a report that he may return to New York's lineup for their Christmas Eve home game against the Washington Commanders.

“I'm not sure about some of these reports,” Rodgers said Tuesday, according to Al Iannazzone from Newsday. “There are loose lips everywhere. But I won't let this sink my ship.”

Jets head coach Robert Saleh told reporters Monday that he had “no knowledge” of the matter TMZ Sports story that says Rodgers “will be completely clean before the Week 16 game” against Washington. Meanwhile, Rodgers' latest spot, “The Pat McAfee Show,” came a week after he ripped Jets insiders allegedly responsible for “several leaks” during his tenure with the organization, which began last spring.

As he noticed Wilton Jackson on Sports Illustrated Rodgers added on Tuesday that he's taking part in extra midweek drills as the big deadline approaches. The Jets have until December 20 to activate the 40-year-old or decide to keep him on injured reserve for the rest of the season.

“I'm getting better, I'm improving,” Rodgers explained. “I still have to do a few things to be cleared. I'm not sure where this report comes from. There have been a lot of interesting reports about our team recently.”

On Tuesday late afternoon ESPN Football Power Index gave the 5-8 Jets a 0.3% chance of making the playoffs. At the same time chance checker listed Gang Green as an 8.5-point road underdog for Sunday's upcoming game against the 9-4 Miami Dolphins.

You'd think the Jets would suffer a loss at Hard Rock Stadium if Rodgers isn't sidelined until spring training begins, but he may insist on playing against the Commanders no matter what happens this weekend.
