Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue and Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito reportedly spoke to each other this week about the racial slurs Ngakoue claimed Incognito used during their AFC wild-card game.

Both players are members of the AFC Pro Bowl squad, and Ngakoue said on Wednesday they spoke before the first practice of the week on what happened.

Ngakoue did not provide any specifics about what was said, and Incognito did not speak to the media.

Ngakoue's teammate Malik Jackson does not know what they said either, but he was pleased that they spoke to each other.

"(NFL players) have a huge respect for each other and sometimes the heat of the moment can get to you and you can say things you might not really mean or do things you might not really mean and be apologetic for it," Jackson told ESPN.com. "I think it shows the true character of a man to come and apologize and/or talk about it to clear the air."

The NFL said an investigation of Ngakoue's allegation is ongoing, although the Buffalo News reported earlier this week that Incognito is not expected to face any punishment.
