Ngakoue stands behind tweet, saying Incognito "knows what he said"

Yannick Ngakoue

Fellow Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said several Buffalo players were talking trash during the game, especially in the second half.

Jacksonville defensive end Yannick Ngakoue said on Twitter on Sunday night that Incognito, whom he referred to only by his number, used "some weak racist slurs" in the game.

A day after his tweet, Ngakoue stood by him claims when he met with reporters. "I'm proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league.#Iaintjonathanmartin!".

Of course, Incognito was suspended by the Miami Dolphins for eight games in 2013 for his role in a bullying incident with teammate Jonathan Martin. The 34-year old lineman missed an entire season in 2014 but has made three straight Pro Bowls, including this year, since signing with the Buffalo Bills in 2015.

"I couldn't", Ngakoue said.

Said Ngakoue: "It was just after a certain play".

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

Which racial slur was used?

Several players from both teams said Monday they did not hear Incognito use a racial slur.

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 is not going to bother you, but when somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it a little bit too far. "For him to go to social media and to put it out there, I don't think he's lying". But if he did overstep, I would have said something. "That's why we have this platform to use to try to help bring change".
