Rodgers says Vikings player gave him the middle finger after hit

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr made an offensive gesture towards him after hitting him, breaking Rodgers' 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".

Rodgers appeared on "Conan" during the Packers' bye week after he underwent surgery last Thursday to fix his right clavicle.

Speaking to reporters about the hit last week, Barr said, "By no means was I trying to take out Aaron Rodgers".

In an "Outtakes" segment posted online, Rodgers went more in-depth about the play that might have ended his season. National Football League rules don't allow players on IR to return to practice for six weeks and to game action for eight weeks.
