National Football League looking into allegation that Richie Incognito used racial slur

Former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito accused of using'racist slur vs. Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue stood by his tweet accusing Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito of using "weak racist slurs" during their playoff game, but declined Monday to provide more details about what was said. "I'm proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league.#Iaintjonathanmartin!".

Ngakoue did not reveal what it was specifically that Incognito said to him, but he said the word was "racist" and made reference to Incognito's infamous bullying scandal with former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin.

Incognito was suspended for eight games that season for what report described as "a pattern of harassment" against Martin, which included racial slurs.

It wasn't pretty, but the Jacksonville Jaguars managed a 10-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills yesterday, advancing to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs where they'll take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I think they were really trying to get us to lose our cool and try to get penalties", Campbell said. "But there's boundaries. You don't go to racial slurs; that's not OK". He signed with the Bills in 2015.

Fallen Pierce County deputy lived in Yelm and had Grays Harbor ties
A burglary investigation that began Sunday night southwest of Tacoma ended with the death of a Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy. Bethel School District canceled all classes for Monday out of "an abundance of caution", it reported on its Facebook page.

How different was this than the usual trash talk?

"I couldn't", Ngakoue said.

"I had to focus on the game, I had to focus on winning". "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". Stuff is not going to bother you, but when somebody says something about your ethnicity, that's really kind of taking it a little bit too far.

"Did I confront him? Nah. That's why we have this platform to use to try to help bring change".
