Quarterback Josh Allen downplayed any ill will Sunday following a brief skirmish at the end of the Buffalo Bills' practice Saturday.

Allen, who was wearing a red noncontact jersey, was bumped by defensive tackle Jordan Phillips before crossing the goal line. The Bills passer shoved Phillips after the play, which resulted in a brief scrum between offensive and defensive players. The pair were separated by teammates before both sides calmed down.

Buffalo's defensive line was reportedly "buzzing around" Allen during practice and made contact with the signal-caller before the incident.

Center Mitch Morse also played down the incident Saturday. Although the veteran noted tension tends to run high during training camp, he said, "You never want it to be carried over or get carried away (because) someone can get hurt."
