There was a bit of a stir at Bills training camp over the weekend when quarterback Josh Allen got into a mini-fight with a defenseman. Jordan Phillips.

Allen has been featured in video from saturday pushing Phillips a bit after the draw when he may have gotten too close to the signalman. Allen hasn’t spoken to the media since then, so when asked about it on Thursday, he shyly said, “I don’t understand what you’re talking about.”

But then he gave a more detailed explanation.

“Spitfire, it was the first day of pads. The camp is long. I guess I was wrong,” Allen said. “But then again, I’m just trying to cheer up some guys ready to go. This is football. Yes, that’s how it was. There was nothing. I bought him a Pro V1 box [golf balls] for pushing him, I felt bad. But it’s all about love. We’re just trying to push each other, trying to be great.”

Allen said there are other ways to increase the intensity when needed. But he also believes that given what Buffalo wants to achieve in 2022, it’s not always bad practice.

“Sometimes it’s necessary,” Allen said. “Good teams sometimes fight. The guys really want it, the guys are very competitive, the guys push each other. So you’ve seen a little bit of annoyance flare up again today, and again all because we want to win. We want to work very hard. We want to beat the guys in front of us, no matter who it is. But it’s nice to see that both sides of football and the whole team are on fire right now because we just want to win football matches.”

Allen noted that head coach Sean McDermott said he was better off telling the team to soften the situation than accept it.

“Things get brittle when guys work hard and try to beat the other guy in front of them,” Allen said. “I think this is exactly where we are. The guys want to win. The guys want to win each other. We also have a lot of talkers in our team. So it was a fun camp, it really was. And I appreciate the intensity on both sides of the ball.”
