Aaron Rodgers: Anthony Barr gave me the finger, "suck it" sign

Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers celebrates after an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday Sept. 24 2017 in Green Bay Wis. The Packers won 27-24 in overtime

"I looked over at him (Barr) as I walked off the field", Rodgers said.

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

Instead, Conan spends the segment focused on the 13 screws in Rodgers' shoulder, bringing in an anatomical likeness to recreate the injury, and clowning on Green Bay offensive lineman David Bakhtiari.

"I rolled out to my right, I threw the ball, and I got tackled and kind of slammed on the ground".

Rodgers has another four weeks before he can practice and isn't eligible to play in a game until the Packers' Dec. 17 game at Carolina. But I'm good now.

Microsoft kills Kinect, its motion control camera for Xbox and Windows
The full body tracking of the Kinect lent itself very nicely to certain genres of games , one of which was dancing. This isn't surprising since there weren't a lot of games that utilized the technology in recent years.

The "Take Back" initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft through proper disposal of prescription drugs. More than 40 people in Mississippi have died of a drug overdose this year, according to the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics.

Barr said he wouldn't change anything about the hit on Rodgers.

That sound you just heard was hundreds of JS commenters deleting their latest Aaron Rodgers tirades. "Sometimes you exaggerate. And then sometimes, you tell the truth".

Despite the league's non-punishment, Rodgers and Packers coach Mike McCarthy have chided Barr after the fact.

Is Aaron Rodgers as strong at video games as he is on the gridiron? No. This time, the injured clavicle is on his throwing side and is serious enough to require screws, so he might be looking at a longer recovery timetable than the one he saw in 2013.
