Ngakoue says Incognito used "weak racist slurs" during game
Jan 10 2018 by Marjorie Miles
Sunday night, Ngakoue sent out a tweet indicating that Incognito had used a racial slur, and he did not back down from his comment Monday when he spoke to reporters in Jacksonville. "I think there was misunderstanding of what was said".
Buffalo guard Richie Incognito (64) sets up to block during Sunday's first-round playoff loss to the Jaguars.
"The league is doing their investigation, we understand his side and some of the other guys that heard, but until we get it finalized, I don't want to comment on it", he said.
"Somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it a little too far".
However, Beane said the team has contacted the National Football League about Ngakoue's allegations, and that Incognito has unsuccessfully reached out to the Jags lineman.
When it comes to securing a quarterback, Bills General Manager Brandon Beane said "we'll spend what we need to spend" under center.
A Maryland native who played in college for the Terrapins and whose parents hail from Cameroon and the West Indies, Ngakoue indicated that Incognito had insulted his heritage.
Incognito has not made any public statement about Sunday's accusation.
ESPN also notes that the team acknowledged they are still attempting to gather information about the alleged incident, and that Incognito has attempted to get in touch with Ngakoue. "But as far as I knew, he did his thing". "It's really early, so it would be total speculation".
"It was chippy out there, but I didn't hear anything", said Wood.
Jacksonville defensive end Calais Campbell said Monday that Bills players were "really trying to get us to lose our cool and ... get penalties".
Beane, speaking Tuesday at his end-of-year press conference with head coach Sean McDermott, said there was an exchange between Incognito and Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, who made the accusation on Twitter following the game, which the Jaguars won 10-3. "The whole situation is very unfortunate", McDermott said in response.
