Following the Bills’ 10-3 loss Sunday to the Jaguars, Buffalo offensive lineman Richie Incognito was accused of making racial slurs by the Jaguars’ Yannick Ngakoue. The Jacksonville defensive end did not offer details on the specifics of those alleged slurs, but Incognito has been accused of racism in the past, including during a 2013 episode when he was suspended for bullying a teammate while with the Dolphins.
Referring to Incognito by his jersey number, 64, Ngakoue posted the following on Twitter Sunday night…
Great win to day! And 64, you goin have to come harder than some weak racist slurs. I’m proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league. #Iaintjonathanmartin!

Ngakoue did not offer any further comment Sunday on his accusation toward Incognito, but given that his Jaguars are set to take on the Steelers Sunday in an AFC divisional round game, he will almost certainly be asked about it in a media session. Neither Incognito nor the Bills’ organization had any comment on Sunday, but another Buffalo offensive lineman, Dion Dawkins, came to his teammate’s defense.
