Yannick Ngakoue addresses alleged comment made by Bills guard Richie Incognito

The NFL is investigating allegations that Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito used a racial slur toward Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue in Sunday's Wild Card Round matchup.

"NFL investigator Ted Wells released a report in 2014 detailing "a pattern of harassment" against Martin by Incognito and other Dolphins players that included racial slurs".

"(Incognito) said what he said yesterday, and like I said before, we had a great team win yesterday and I said what I needed to say yesterday", Ngakoue said. 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. "As far as I know, he did his thing".

"I was next to Richie the entire game and Richie did not say one thing", Dawkins said.

Three of Ngakoue's defensive line teammates said they didn't hear the alleged remarks from Incognito.

Jones said he could tell Ngakoue was upset but wasn't sure why. Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, formerly of the Bills, said he was unaware there was an incident. Like I said before, we had a great team win yesterday.

Then-Bills head coach Rex Ryan gave Incognito a second chance after he sat out the entire 2014 season, signing him to a one-year deal in 2015. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks.

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

Ngakoue did not reveal what it was specifically that Incognito said to him, but he said the word was "racist" and made reference to Incognito's infamous bullying scandal with former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin. The accusation turned into a lengthy investigation, which uncovered a racially charged voicemail Incognito left for Martin.

"Did I confront him? Nah".
