After the Bills lost to Jacksonville in the Wild Card round Sunday, Jags defensive tackle Yannick Ngakoue tweeted that Incognito used a racial slur towards him during the game.
Ngakoue said he was somewhat shocked after hearing the racial slur but decided against confronting Incognito on the field.
The NFL has come out and said it will investigate the accusations Ngakoue has made against Incognito, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The former Nebraska football star said the player deserved it because of a shot Gronkowski made on a Buffalo Bills player a few weeks prior. You hear all types of stuff. "I had to focus on the game, I had to focus on winning".
Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue addressed a controversial post-game social media message Monday.
Ngakoue triggered the latest controversy surrounding Incognito late Sunday by tweeting that Incognito had used "weak racist slurs" during the Jaguars' 10-3 victory. Incognito was not available in the Bills' locker room.
WTLV reported that three other defensive linemen on the Jaguars said they didn't hear the alleged comments. Campbell also said it seemed like Bills players were deliberately trying to antagonize Jaguars players.
The hashtag used by Ngakoue, #Iaintjonathanmartin, refers to the National Football League investigation that found Incognito and two others harassed former teammate Jonathan Martin while with the Miami Dolphins in 2014.
Ngakoue saw it differently, saying Incognito's words came after a pass play.
"Stuff isn't going to bother you but when somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it too far".
Incognito was suspended for eight games that season for what report described as "a pattern of harassment" against Martin, which included racial slurs. "But you can't say certain things".
