National Football League looking into allegation that Richie Incognito used racial slur

National Football League looking into allegation that Richie Incognito used racial slur

After the game, Jaguars' defensive end Yannick Nhakoue claimed Bills' Richie Incognito was using racist slurs during the game.

Incognito has not responded to Ngakoue's tweet.

Ngakoue spoke to reporters in Jacksonville during Monday's locker-room availability but didn't go into great detail, according to Jacksonville's WTLV-TV.

"I'm embarrassed by my actions, but what I want people to know is the way Jonathan and the rest of the offensive line, and our teammates, how we communicate, it's vulgar. I don't got to repeat it".

Ngakoue declined Monday to disclose what Incognito said. Ngakoue's father is a native of Cameroon and his mother is from the West Indies.

Ngakoue said he didn't make a scene during the game. "You hear all type of stuff", Ngakoue added. I'm all about trash talk. "It's part of the game, but you can't say certain things".

Ngakoue said on Twitter on Sunday night that a Bills player wearing No. 64 was going to "have to come harder than some weak racist slurs". "He also used the hashtag #Iaintjonathanmartin!", referring to Incognito's role in a bullying scandal with another player when he was a member of Miami Dolphins in 2013. Incognito was not available in the Bills' locker room. "But honestly I didn't hear it, so I can't speak either way on it". I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks.

"I didn't hear anything but I know how Yan is", Jones said.

Ngakoue saw it differently, saying Incognito's words came after a pass play.

The Dolphins suspended Incognito, who sat out the entire 2014 season before joining the Bills in 2015.

One of the most disturbing pieces of evidence from National Football League investigator Ted Wells' 2014 report was a voice message Incognito left Martin, referring to the offensive tackle as the N-word and saying he'll kill him. "I couldn't confront him".
