RICHMOND, Va. - Bruce Allen knows well the history of Washington Redskins quarterback controversies. Sonny Jurgensen vs. Billy Kilmer in the 70s. Doug Williams vs. Jay Schroder in the 80s. Heath Shuler vs. Gus Frerotte in 90s. In 2013, the popular take-sides issue isnt QB vs. QB. Its QB vs. coach. Robert Griffin III vs. Mike Shanahan. And Allen doesnt see this one going anywhere. "I dont see a controversy at all," Allen said Friday. "I know somehow Billy and Sonny are laughing that we created a quarterback controversy with Robert Griffin. But we have a very competitive player whos dying to play football and we have a very experienced coach whos doing the right thing." Training camp came to an end for the Redskins on Friday, and from beginning to end it was dominated by Griffins return from major knee surgery. The enormously popular quarterback and reigning NFL offensive rookie of the year moved well despite the brace on his right knee, whether he was rolling right on a bootleg or sprinting 100-plus yards along the rope barriers to slap hands with fans after practice. It was a remarkable sight, considering that his surgery was seven month ago for an injury that often takes more than a year to completely heal. Still, he felt he should have been doing more than he was allowed under Shanahans practice plan and wasnt shy about saying it publicly. On Monday, Griffin escalated the saga by saying he didnt like the plan and didnt fully understand it. The backlash was such that he made a special statement the next day to announce there was "no conflict" between him and the coach. On Wednesday, Griffin took his first 11-on-11 snaps of camp, albeit against a scout team defence. Shanahan has vetoed Griffins desire to play in a preseason game, preferring instead to focus on the Week 1 regular season opener Sept. 9. "Hes doing well right now. He is ahead of schedule. ... Weve had no setbacks so far," said Allen, knocking his fist superstitiously three times on the wooden podium. "And the goal is for him to play in Week 1. Dont know if itll happen." Other highlights from Allens state-of-camp news conference: — Allen made it sound as if a contract extension for Shanahan isnt imminent. Shanahan is entering the fourth year of a five-year deal. His future could hinge on whether his relationship with Griffin turns into a full-blown rift. "This isnt the time that wed be talking about the head coach or any of that stuff," Allen said. "Mike is really focused on this season." — Allen said the Redskins are still feeling the ramifications of a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed by the NFL in 2012 and 2013. He said the team will probably have to renegotiate some contracts to stay under the cap when the final cuts are made, and that the penalty will also have an effect on negotiations to sign two-time Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo to an extension. "That salary penalty will hurt us for a number of years," Allen said. "Its not just those two years, because of the repercussions of it down the road." — Allen hailed the Redskins first year of camp in Richmond as a success. He said "well over 150,000" fans attended, surpassing the teams goal of 100,000. The larger-than-expected crowds created some logistical issues, especially when about 100 people were treated for heat-related problems on Fan Appreciation Day. "Well prepare for that better" next year, Allen said. Allen and team owner Dan Snyder regularly walked to practice from the team hotel, covering several miles each day and greeting fans along the way. He said the two came across quite a few parties at various restaurants as during their trundle on Thursday night. "We didnt do any karaoke," Allen said, "that I remember." Brandon Mebane Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have activated defenceman Joni Pitkanen from injured reserve. Matt Slauson Jersey . Watching them over the past year - and in some cases, two years - has given us a starting point for this seasons Craigs List. ... ml?cat=884. -- Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the sideline as the Packers make their push for a perfect regular season. Tyrell Williams Jersey . At times during a solid but not spectacular season, they looked all three. Still the defending AFC champions persevered, riding their top-ranked defence and key contributions from younger players to a 12-4 record and their eighth playoff appearance since 2000, remarkable consistency in a league where change is the only constant. LaDainian Tomlinson Jersey .com) - Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeVeon Bell, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil and New England Patriots punter Ryan Allen were selected as the AFCs top players for Week 14 of the NFL season. DALLAS -- Brandan Wrights season debut just happened to come on a night when Dirk Nowitzki was home sick. The trade-off worked out just fine for Dallas. Wright led the Mavericks with 19 points, Jose Calderon got the offence going early and finished with 18, and Dallas shrugged off the absence of Nowitzki and coach Rick Carlisle to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-93 Saturday night. Nowitzki and Carlisle missed the game with an undisclosed illness. Carlisle has been fighting an upper respiratory problem since before a four-game road trip that started last week. Wright, who missed the first 23 games with a shoulder injury, scored seven straight points in a 19-5 run that put Dallas in control, 43-26, early in the second quarter. "Im going to be aggressive either way it goes," said Wright, who was 9 of 10 from the floor and added six rebounds in 19 minutes. "If Dirk plays or Monta (Ellis) plays or none of those guys play, Ive got to play the same way. Ive got to play hard." John Henson had 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Bucks, who fell behind by 34 late in the third quarter before rallying in the fourth to make the final score respectable. O.J. Mayo, who played despite the recent death of his grandmother, had four points on 1-of-6 shooting in his first game in Dallas against his former team since signing with the Bucks as a free agent last summer. "We came in here and laid an egg," Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said. "We didnt play well. We had very low energy, which was disappointing." Nowitzki and Carlisle missed the shootaround earlier Saturday and werent at American Airlines Center for the game. The Mavericks dont play again until Wednesday, so they should have plenty of time to recover. Even without their star and their coach, the Mavericks were never in much trouble with assistant Monte Mathis in charge. Dallas didnt even need much from Ellis, the teams leading scorer. He had seven points and five assists and essentially deferred to Calderon, who had 16 points at halftime on 4-of-6 shooting from 3-point range. "Very important, especially with Monta kind of feeling things out and not getting some of the opportunities that he typically has, its good for another guy to sstep up and be aggressive," Mathis said.dddddddddddd The biggest decision for Mathis was whether to bring back any other starters after the Bucks went on a 13-0 run in the fourth quarter and eventually got within 13 in the final 2 minutes. Mathis did reinsert DeJuan Blair after Wright had returned, and the Mavericks kept the lead in double digits. "One or two more baskets," Mathis said of how tempting it was to go with Ellis and Calderon again. "We didnt want to get them in there. We wanted our other guys to finish it out." Shawn Marion had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Mavericks. Vince Carter had 15 points and a game-high nine assists. Brandon Knight scored 16 for Milwaukee, but only four after the first quarter. "We came out flat," Henson said of the Bucks, who lost by a point to Chicago at home a night earlier and have played five sets of back-to-back games in their last 10. "The combination of these games and the travel, I think we kind of hit that wall." Wright grabbed two quick rebounds after coming in midway through the first quarter and finished the first half with 11 points and five rebounds in 10 minutes. The highlight for Wright was a putback dunk for a 79-51 lead in the third. Just 3 minutes later, Blair gave the Mavericks their biggest lead at 90-56 on a jumper. Blair had 11 points and nine rebounds. Samuel Dalembert, signed in the off-season to be the starting centre for the Mavericks, was the only Dallas player who didnt get off the bench. For Dalembert, it was something of a replay of his one season with Milwaukee, when he went through a long midseason stretch without playing and got into just one of the last 11 games. NOTES: Bucks G Carlos Delfino had surgery on his right foot performed by Dr. Donato Villani in Argentina. There is no timetable for the 31-year-olds return. ... Carlisle missed a game for the first time since the franchises only championship season of 2010-11. He missed a Dec. 27 victory at Oklahoma City a day after having arthroscopic knee surgery. Assistant Dwane Casey, now the head coach in Toronto, filled in then. ... Bucks G Gary Neal left late in the second quarter with plantar fasciitis and didnt return.
