Aaron Rodgers says Anthony Barr gave him finger after hit

Aaron Rodgers says Anthony Barr gave him finger after hit

Wearing a sling and ready to game, Rodgers revealed that the surgery required 13 screws to fix his collarbone.

Rodgers appeared on the late-night show "Conan" on Thursday, where he and host Conan O'Brien discussed his injury and played newly-released videogame "Assassin's Creed: Origins".

"By no means was I trying to take out Aaron Rodgers", Barr said in an interview with the St. Paul Pioneer Press Oct. 20.

Meanwhile, despite the broken collarbone and a bulky arm sling, Rodgers crushed O'Brien in the video game.

Its collarbone is eventually smashed with a hammer. Rodgers went down after taking a hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.

"I looked over at him as I walked off the field", Rodgers told O'Brien. Rodgers said the cameras never showed what Barr did. "If it happened to my quarterback, I'd probably say it was illegal and the same thing", Barr told reporters last week, per NFL.com. He's one of, if not, the best player in this league.

Rodgers has already been placed on injured reserve, meaning he's off the Packers active roster for at least eight weeks. I don't play dirty.

The hit, which Packers head coach Mike McCarthy argued was completely unnecessary, ended Rodgers's season and required surgery.
