Vikings' Barr says he was not trying to injure Aaron Rodgers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr said Friday he did not intend to "take out" Aaron Rodgers with a hit last weekend that left the Packers quarterback with a broken right collarbone.

After spending most of the week in the NFL's concussion protocol, Barr was cleared Friday and allowed to speak to the media for the first time since Sunday's game.

"By no means was I trying to injure or take out Aaron Rodgers," Barr said. "He's one of, if not the best, player in this league. I'm not a dirty player. I don't play dirty. We don't preach that around here."
