Vikings LB Anthony Barr responds back to Aaron Rodgers' comments
Two weeks have passed since the Vikings' Anthony Barr’s hit broke Packers Aaron Rodgers’ right collarbone and the feud between the linebacker and quarterback continues.
While appearing on the "Clueless Gamer" segment of "Conan" on Thursday (video below), Rodgers claimed Barr directed a pair of obscene gestures at him following the hit.
Barr responded to Rodgers’ claims today, posting this statement on Twitter:
Last Friday, Barr told reporters he didn't intend to injure Rodgers on the play and that he's not a dirty player.
Green Bay is still holding out hope that Rodgers will return this season after a successful surgery to repair the broken collarbone.
The Packers, who have a bye this week, have since turned to Brett Hundley as their starting quarterback. Hundley lost his first start last week to the New Orleans Saints.
The Vikings enter Week 8 in London against the Cleveland Browns with a one-game lead in the NFC North at 5-2.
