Former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito accused of using 'racist slur' vs. Jaguars

Former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito accused of using 'racist slur' vs. Jaguars

In an ugly NFL playoff game, the Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Buffalo Bills 10-3, advancing to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs where they'll take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The NFL is looking into allegations that Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito used racial slurs against a Jacksonville Jaguars player in Sunday's playoff game, according to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.

Ngakoue voiced his complaint on Twitter, calling out Incognito by his No. 64 jersey.

He infamously harassed former Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin, which involved him using some race-based abuse. He did not play in the National Football League the following season and later joined the Bills in 2015.

How different was this than the usual trash talk? "You hear all types of stuff", Ngakoue said.

"I just felt like people needed to know what happened", he said.

Ngakoue adds, "I've been playing this game since I was a little kid".

Offensive lineman Dion Dawkins sent out a tweet saying that he was, "next to my guy the entire game and the entire season" and never heard any racist comments come from Incognito. Stuff's not going to bother you, but somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it a little bit too far. Like I said before, we had a great team win yesterday. "But there's boundaries. You don't go to racial slurs; that's not OK".

Incognito, 34, has made the Pro Bowl each of his three seasons since signing with the Bills in 2015.

"Did I confront him? Nah". But if he did overstep, I would have said something. "That's why we have this platform to use to try and help bring change".
