Rodgers shares new injury details during 'Conan' appearance

October 27, 2017

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is in pretty good spirits in spite of the 13 screws he says are currently holding his collarbone together.

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."

Rodgers, who suffered the injury in a loss to the rival Minnesota Vikings earlier this month, revealed a few new details about the hit.

According to Rodgers, Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr directed a pair of obscene gestures at the Packers quarterback following the hit that weren't shown on television.

O'Brien ribs Rodgers often throughout the nearly 10-minute segment, at one point bringing a Packers-themed model skeleton on stage.

Its collarbone is eventually smashed with a hammer.
