Not only did Anthony Barr break Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone, he flipped him off afterwards and gave him the “suck it sign.” So says the Green Bay Packers quarterback.
Rodgers made an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer” segment on Thursday night when the late night host forced him to relive his recent injury.
“I roll out to my right, I threw the ball, and I got tackled and kinda slammed on the ground. I looked over at him as I walked off the field. The cameras caught me saying something to him, but what they missed was him: finger, suck it sign,” Rodgers said, acting out the motions. “There’s no respect anymore in this business,” he joked.
“But I’m good now. Thirteen screws later, and here I am.”
Barr previously shrugged off questions about Rodgers shouting at him.
“He wasn’t happy, and I understand. He probably realized that he was injured at that time, and he wasn’t happy,” Barr said. “I probably would have had that same reaction. It’s fine.”
If Rodgers is telling the truth, it seems that Barr left a few details out about their on-field encounter.
