JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue sent a tweet Sunday night that appears to accuse Bills left guard Richie Incognito of making racist comments.
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!

Incognito wears No. 64 for the Bills, who were eliminated from the playoffs with a 10-3 loss to the Jaguars at EverBank Field. The hash tag used in Ngakoue's tweet makes reference to the bullying scandal that Incognito was involved in during his time with the Miami Dolphins in 2013. Martin had accused Incognito of making racist and homophobic comments.
Incognito was suspended for eight games in 2013 and was out of the league in 2014. He signed with the Bills before the 2015 season.
Neither a Bills spokesman nor Incognito immediately responded to a request for comment Sunday night.
An NFL spokesman said Monday morning in an email that the league will look into the situation.
The Jaguars said Ngakoue is scheduled to be available Monday as is coach Doug Marrone.
Bills rookie tackle Dion Dawkins took to Twitter to defend Incognito on Sunday night.
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
