Josh Allen, the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, was involved in a brief altercation with defensive tackle Jordan Phillips during the training camp on Saturday. The team will play their first NFL pre-season game against the Indianapolis Colts on August 14.
A video clip of the Bills training camp surfaced on social media, showing Allen shoving Phillips in his helmet. The two were then involved in a brief scuffle.
"Mitch Morse said Bills have been here a whole week and pads go on. Guys aren’t sleeping well and it’s more physical when pads are on. Stuff like exchange between Josh Allen and Jordan Phillips are going to happen in camp," Bills beat reporter for syracuse.com racted to the fight.
"We’ve got out first camp scuffle. Jordan Phillips against Josh Allen. Yes, seriously, you read that correctly. On a two-point try, Allen ran up the middle and Phillips looked like he caught him a bit high. Allen didn’t like that," Matthew Bové, sports director at WKBW said.
Bills center Mitch Morse told Syracuse.com that emotions are allowed to get high.
“Immediately you want him out of that pile. Emotions are allowed to get high - it’s an emotional sport. Tensions run high at times, but you never want it to be carried over or get carried away and someone can get hurt. And then you have some real trouble on your hands and things can escalate quickly," Morse said.
Josh Allen, who is entering his fifth season with the Bills, racked up 4,407 yards and 36 touchdowns last year. He led the team to their third straight playoff appearance. They were knocked out in the divisional round by Kansas City Chiefs.
Jordan Phillips, on the other hands, returned to the Buffalo Bills after representing the Arizona Cardinals for two years. He had 22 total tackles in nine games.
