"From what I understand, it was a little bit of on-the-field stuff, back and forth."

However, Beane said the team has contacted the NFL about Ngakoue's allegations, and that Incognito has unsuccessfully reached out to the Jags lineman.

Ngakoue said Monday he could not recall whether Incognito used the N-word.

"No, I don't remember, but, you know, he said what he said," Ngakoue said (via ESPN). "He knows what he said. I don't gotta repeat it."

Buffalo tackle Dion Dawkins tweeted Sunday he didn't hear Incognito say anything inappropriate.

"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," the tweet read.
