Josh Allen Buys Teammate a Gift as an Apology For Scuffle
The Buffalo Bills are getting closer to their annual blue and red scrimmage, which will be held at Highmark Stadium tomorrow at 5:30 pm. It's the first chance for many Bills fans to see the team in action.
For the fans who have been to Rochester to see the team play in training camp, it's been quite the noteworthy camp compared to recent years.
The biggest reason for that (other than turkey burgers) are the skirmishes that have taken place. Two have involved Stefon Diggs, with the first being a heated exchange with rookie first-round pick Kaiiir Elam and the second coming today, as he and edge rusher Greg Rousseau got into it before others joined in to help break things up.
Josh Allen was involved in his own scuffle at training camp, which took place this past Saturday, when he and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips got into it after a play, which caused many Bills players to jump in.
Allen said after Thursday's practice that it he was probably in the wrong in that moment and bought Phillips a set of Pro V1 golf balls as an apology.
Without knowing who was at fault since we were not there on the field, it's class act for Allen to take ownership of what happened. That's what leaders are supposed to do.
Phillips plays with a mean streak and Allen wasn't backing down. In the end, those are fine for training camp; fans and coaches are just hoping nobody gets hurt when those things take place.
