Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was well enough to play on Thursday - that is play video games with Conan O'Brien.

"By no means was I trying to take out Aaron Rodgers", Barr said in an interview with the St. Paul Pioneer Press Oct. 20.

And during the introductions, Rodgers just casually happened to drop some breaking news about his potentially season-ending injury: The surgery to fix it resulted in 13 - THIRTEEN! - screws in his broken collarbone.

Then Conan brought in a producer to talk about how far his fantasy football team fell after Rodgers got hurt, to which Conan asked Bakhtiari, "David, would you like to apologize?"

Rodgers was carted to the locker room in the first quarter after taking a hit from Barr and landing hard on his right shoulder. Barr was neither fined nor suspended for the hit by the NFL. I'm not a dirty player.

"It's unfortunate, the injury". He said that the "worst-case scenario" is that Rodgers will not play again this season. "They think it's a great idea, and they are promising us it will get to Rogers", Elizabeth said.

I guess having him play Madden would be a little too on the nose, wouldn't it? In an appearance on Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer segment, Rodgers said there were some extracurricular actions from Barr.
