NFL looking into allegation that Richie Incognito used racial slur

Richie Incognito

Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue indicated on Twitter Sunday night that Richie Incognito directed a racial slur toward him during Jacksonville’s win over the Buffalo Bills, and the NFL is looking into the allegation.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that an NFL official said Ngakoue’s accusation is being taken seriously.

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.

Incognito has been accused by at least one NFL player of using the N-word in the past, so this is not the first time a player has said he used a racial slur.
