Anthony Barr Responds to Aaron Rodgers' Claim LB Taunted Him After Injury

Share

So the Packers quarterback accused the Vikings linebacker of making a lewd gesture towards him, but conveniently failed to mention that this only happened after Rodgers hurled a bunch of insults at Barr first. "The cameras caught me saying something to him, but what they missed was, him (giving) the finger and the "suck it" sign", Rodgers said on "Conan", a late night talk show on TBS. But I'm good now. So naturally I responded.

On Oct. 20, Barr said he had no intention of injuring Rodgers, per Eric Smith of the Vikings' official website: "By no means was I trying to injure or take out Aaron Rodgers".

He also included the hashtag #13DaysLater as if to say, "Why are we still talking about this?" .

Earlier this week, Rodgers told Conan O'Brien that Barr gave him the finger and the "suck it" sign as he was exiting the field following the injury. "He wasn't happy, and I understand". At this time, Rodgers is still yelling over at Barr. "I probably would have had that same reaction".

Nor-easter-like storm expected this weekend
We're anticipating numerous power issues Sunday night into Monday with the greatest power threat along coastal areas of the state. The National Weather Service projects a 50 percent chance of rain tonight , with a 100 percent chance of heavy rain on Sunday .

Green Bay is still holding out hope that Rodgers will return this season after a successful surgery to fix the broken collarbone. "It's TV. Sometimes you exaggerate". His activities in the Los Angeles area?

Other camera angles of the exchange show actual proof that Barr's Michael Jackson impersonation occurred after the quarterback began cursing him out. Maybe he'll clear all this up this week when he returns to Green Bay after having surgery and recuperating in Southern California.

The Vikings and Packers meet again at Lambeau Field on December 23. That game comes a week after Rodgers would be eligible to play, if his collarbone heals cooperatively and if the Packers are in playoff contention.
