Aaron Rodgers rang in 40 in style as he partied with teammates and some celebrity pals on Sunday to celebrate his big birthday.

The Jets quarterback, who was sidelined in his debut with New York after a tear to his left Achilles and has spent the season injured, threw a star-studded birthday bash at celebrity-favorite Zero Bond in New York City on Sunday.

Rodgers was joined by his friends, including actor Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh, Olympian Lindsey Vonn and several of his Jets teammates, for the celebration.

Jets' wide receiver Randall Cobb and his wife Aiyda, fullback Nick Bawden and his wife Alexis and tight end C.J. Uzomah and his partner, Yasmin Quintana, were spotted in photos on social media from the bash.

Frankie Bakhtiari, the wife of Rodgers' former Packers teammate David Bakhtiari, also shared several posts from the party on Instagram, writing, "an amazing night celebrating an amazing person" in the caption.

And Vonn shared a picture of Rodgers' cake, which featured a few of his favorite things — the Jets, guitar, Jeopardy and his Super Bowl trophy. "The big 4-0!" Vonn wrote. "Happy birthday to the OG."

Just before the party, Rodgers' Jets fell to the Atlanta Falcons, 13-8 at MetLife Stadium.

The four-time NFL MVP has been sidelined since Sept 11 after he was sacked by Bills linebacker Leonard Floyd in the first few minutes of the first game of the season, and tore his Achilles.

Within the week, Rodgers had surgery and began his recovery process.

"I’m completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love. 💔 Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin the healing process today. 🙏 ♾️ ❤️," Rodgers wrote in a post on Instagram two days after his injury.

Last month, he told PEOPLE that his rehabilitation process has "been a grind."

"Frustration, sadness — a lot of sadness," Rodgers continued before noting how appreciative he is of all the people who have "showed up" for him, especially after his surgery.

"[They] brought me food, took care of me, checked on me, FaceTimed me, called me. So I'm really thankful for everybody who reached out," Rodgers said. "It was a tough time and I was in a rough place."

Rodgers also expressed how much the support has meant to him from fans who have suffered the same injury. "I've heard from people all over the country, all over the world, who tore their Achilles, sending support because I think we're like a tight-knit family."

Rodgers has been a regular at Metlife stadium along with his team throughout the healing process "just to feel a little bit more normal," which he said did a lot for his mental state.

"I felt like I was part of the team," he shares. "And when you're away from it and you're injured most days you don't feel that."
