Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue said Bills guard Richie Incognito used racial slurs during their playoff game Sunday and he’s certain other members of the Bills heard them.

Ngakoue spoke to reporters in Jacksonville during Monday’s locker-room availability but didn’t go into great detail, according to Jacksonville’s WTLV-TV.

“(Incognito) said what he said yesterday, and like I said before, we had a great team win yesterday and I said what I needed to say yesterday,” Ngakoue said.

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.

Ngakoue said he didn’t make a scene during the game.

“I couldn’t,” Ngakoue said. “I couldn’t confront him. I had to focus on the game, I had to focus on winning.”

The NFL confirmed Monday that it plans to investigate the charge.

Ngakoue triggered the latest controversy surrounding Incognito late Sunday by tweeting that Incognito had used “weak racist slurs” during the Jaguars’ 10-3 victory.

Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins, who plays right next to Incognito and like Ngakoue is African-American, wrote that if the slurs had been uttered, he would know and would not be afraid to stand up to Incognito.

WTLV reported that three other defensive linemen on the Jaguars said they didn’t hear the alleged comments. Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, formerly of the Bills, said he was unaware there was an incident.
