     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr said today that he had no intent to injure Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who left last Sunday's game against the Vikings with a broken right collarbone.
 
     Barr hit Rodgers after he threw the ball on a rollout during the first quarter, but the contact did not draw a penalty. Rodgers was evaluated on the sideline and carted off the field. He was quickly ruled out for the game.
 
     Neither Barr nor Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer believed the play was dirty. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, along with players Ahmad Brooks and Jahri Evans, told reporters they thought the hit was unnecessary.
 
     Barr said he wouldn't have done anything differently on the play but understood why people would be upset. He said he received 3,000 Twitter notifications by halftime of Sunday's game, most of them unkind.

     HOUSTON (AP) - Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros try to force a decisive Game 7 in the AL Championship Series when they host the New York Yankees tonight.
 
     Verlander has won all eight of his outings with Houston since arriving from Detroit in an Aug. 31 trade. Now the Astros need to win his ninth game to keep their World Series hopes alive.
 
     Young ace Luis Severino starts for New York in a rematch of Game 2, when Verlander struck out 13 in a complete game and threw a season-high 124 pitches for a 2-1 victory.
 
     The wild-card Yankees have two chances to win one game in Houston for their record 41st trip to the World Series and first since 2009. After going 51-30 at home during the regular season, the AL's best mark, New York is 6-0 at Yankee Stadium in these playoffs but only 1-4 on the road.
 
     The home team has won all five games in the ALCS so far. New York just outscored the Astros 19-5 in three straight victories at home but was beaten 2-1 in each of the first two games at Minute Maid Park.

     UNDATED (AP) - Dusty Baker is done as manager of the Washington Nationals after two seasons, two NL East titles and zero playoff series victories.
 
     Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said he told Baker the news via telephone Friday morning. Baker's two-year deal with the club is expiring.
 
     During a conference call with reporters, Rizzo said "Winning a lot of regular-season games and winning divisions are not enough." He says the goal is to win a world championship." Rizzo declined to say why he believes Baker can't help reach that goal.
 
     The GM also wouldn't offer any specifics about what sort of manager he will be looking for as a replacement. The Nationals will be hiring their sixth manager in a 10-season span.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - The Detroit Tigers have hired Ron Gardenhire as their manager, bringing the longtime Minnesota Twins skipper back to the AL Central to take over a team in the middle of a significant rebuilding process. The Tigers say Gardenhire has agreed to a three-year contract. He takes over for Brad Ausmus, who was let go after four seasons as Detroit's manager. The Tigers went 64-98 this season, finishing tied for the worst record in the majors.
 
     - The Detroit Tigers are declining their $16 million option on right-hander Anibal Sanchez. The move comes as no surprise after Sanchez slipped badly over the past three seasons. He went 3-7 with a 6.41 ERA in 2017. The Tigers signed the Venezuelan to an $80 million, five-year contract before the 2013 season, and the deal included a $5 million buyout if the Tigers declined the option for 2018. Sanchez won the American League ERA title in 2013.

     UNDATED (AP) - The NFL is reviewing possible disciplinary measures for Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, who was ejected from Thursday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs for shoving an official after running onto the field during a scuffle.
 
     League spokesman Joe Lockhart said the NFL is considering all options, including fines and suspension.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says in a post on social media that surgery on his broken collarbone went well. Rodger thanks fans for their "love, support, thoughts and prayers" in a photo of himself in a hospital bed posted on Instagram. It's not clear where the surgery took place. The two-time NFL MVP broke his right collarbone in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and could be gone for the season.
 
     - Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr said today that he had no intent to injure Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

     - Injuries are mounting for the Denver Broncos. Coach Vance Joseph says Donald Stephenson tore his left calf muscle at practice Thursday, and linebacker Corey Nelson suffered a season-ending elbow injury. Stephenson is the third right tackle lost by the Broncos since Sunday night when starter Menelik Watson and backup Billy Turner got injured in Denver's loss to the Giants.
 
     - Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey has returned to practice for the first time since entering the concussion protocol and missing last week's win at Atlanta. He's listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Receiver DeVante Parker is doubtful because of an ankle injury. Cornerback Xavien Howard, also nursing an ankle injury, is questionable.
 
     - Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews is questionable for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a thumb injury. He underwent thumb surgery after being injured in Buffalo's Week 4 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
 
     - Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette could miss his first game of the season because of a sprained right ankle. He's listed as questionable to play Sunday at Indianapolis.
 
     - Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly will miss Carolina's game against the Chicago Bears while in the concussion protocol. Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and two-time All-Pro center Ryan Kalil are expected to start. Kuechly has missed 10 games in the past three seasons because of concussions.
 
     - Luke Kuechly has been voted the NFL's top inside linebacker in The Associated Press rankings. Carolina's playmaking star beat out Seattle's Bobby Wagner and Baltimore's C.J. Mosley for the No. 1 spot. The voting was done by Pro Football Hall of Fame member James Lofton and 10 AP football writers.
