The 49-year-old Rodgers missed the Week 5 victory over the Broncos with what Bowles called a "serious illness." The head coach previously said Rodgers could be absent for several weeks.
But Bowles said Rodgers was at Jets practice on Wednesday after ungoing medical tests, the results of which Rodgers expects to have next week.
Bowles said Friday that Rodgers was unable to do interviews due to the illness, but did not divulge the type of ailment Rodgers was dealing with.
The Jets' defense dedicated their 34-16 win over Denver to Rodgers after sacking QB Case Keenum four times.
