After Sundays Wildcard game Buffalo Bills guard, Richie Incognito was accused of using racial slurs by Jag’s defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. He tweeted this right after the win;
Great win to day! 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. #Iaintjonathanmartin!

Adam Schefter also tweeted this Monday morning after the accusation went up
NFL official said league is “looking into” allegations that Bills’ G Richie Incognito directed a racial slur at Jaguars’ DE Yannick Ngakoue.

Incognito didn’t release a statement about the accusations but his teammate, tackle Dion Dawkins, came to his defense almost immediately after seeing the tweet.
Just for the world to know, everyone always tryna put some bad thing on @68INCOGNITO i was next to my guy the entire game and the entire season and believe me, if he was saying some racist stuff I would have been the first to let him know that was out of line. Cut The BS

While these accusations may turn out to be untrue this isn’t Incognito’s first spat with controversy. In 2013 Incognito was suspended by the Miami Dolphins, it would later come out that he was harassing teammate Johnathan Martin. Richie Incognito sat the whole 2014 season and was signed by the Bill in 2015
The Bills lost to the Jaguars in Sunday ending their season.
