Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue accused Bills guard Richie Incognito of using racial slurs during Sunday’s 10-3 Jacksonville win:


There’s obviously background here. Incognito was suspended in 2013 and went unsigned in 2014 after an investigation determined he had harassed Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin, including calling him a “half-nigger.” (Video also emerged of Incognito using that slur in a bar.) Warren Sapp recounted Incognito using the slur against him during a game, painting it as Incognito trying to provoke him into taking a penalty.

Bills rookie tackle Dion Dawkins came to Incognito’s defense, saying he’s never heard Incognito say anything racist this year.
