Jags' Yannick Ngakoue Accuses Richie Incognito Of Using Racial Slurs

Richie Incognito, the Buffalo Bills guard involved in a bullying scandal five years ago, used racial slurs during Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, an opponent alleged.

Ngakoue backed up his tweet Monday by saying Incognito "knows what he said". The league will likely set up interviews with players from both teams in order to determine the validity of Ngakoue's claim.

Incognito was accused of harassing Jonathan Martin in 2013 while the two were teammates with the Miami Dolphins.

Ngakoue said he was "sure" that Incognito's teammates heard his accused remarks.




"They were really trying and get us to lose our cool and get penalties", Campbell said.

"I understand wanting to give yourself an advantage and egg them on for a penalty, but there are boundaries. But you can't say certain things". Ngakoue ended his tweet with the hashtag #Iaintjonathanmartin!.

Ngakoue spoke with local reporters about the accusations during the Jaguars' weekly Monday post-game locker room availability. "You don't go to racial slurs; that's not OK". "For him to go to social media and to put it out there, I don't think he's lying". "But if he did overstep, I would have said something".

Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins, who plays right next to Incognito and like Ngakoue is African-American, wrote that if the slurs had been uttered, he would know and would not be afraid to stand up to Incognito. "I don't know anything about it".

It should be cautioned that it is just Ngakoue accusing Incognito at this point. I'm not shocked. It is what it is. "That's why we have this platform to use to try and help bring change".
