Jags Player Accuses Bills' Richie Incognito of Using Racial Slurs

Jags Player Accuses Bills' Richie Incognito of Using Racial Slurs

Following the Jacksonville Jaguars' 10-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Jags defense lineman Yannick Ngakoue accused the Bills offensive lineman of using racial slurs. I'm proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league.

The NFL has come out and said it will investigate the accusations Ngakoue has made against Incognito, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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. "You hear all type of stuff".

SpaceX now can look forward to its next major test for the year - launching its huge heavy-duty rocket for the first time ever. The company's first successful Falcon 9 rocket launch of 2018 was also probably the most secretive in the company's history.

Ngakoue said he didn't recall the N-word being used and was unsure if any of teammates heard the comments, but he was "sure" some Bills players did.

Incognito has not officially responded to the allegations relating to racial slurs as now.

Richie Incognito said in 2015 he has "changed for the better" since being cut by the Dolphins in the middle of the 2013 season amid a racially-infused bullying scandal and shunned by the rest of the league.

Jones said he could tell Ngakoue was upset but wasn't sure why. I'm all with trash talk. "I couldn't confront him". Stuff's not going to bother you, but somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it a little bit too far. "That's why we have this platform to use to try to help bring change".
