Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr‘s hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers might have been a lot of things (including season-changing for the league and the Packers).

But according to Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, it wasn’t “dirty.”

“We’re playing football,” Zimmer said, via Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. “It’s unfortunate that he got hurt but I think everything was above board. We’re not a dirty football team. We’ll never be a dirty football team as long as I’m here. We’re going to play within the rules and sometimes things happen.”
