Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant left the sideline before the game ended in Sunday’s 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
On Monday, Bryant apologized telling reporters that he did not want to be seen crying.
“I was wrong,” Bryant told reporters.
“It didn’t have anything to do with my teammates. I just … I couldn’t watch Green Bay kneel the ball down on the field after a tough loss like that.
“I was very emotional. I cried when I got into the locker room. I didn’t want to show that stuff on the sideline.”
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told 105.3 The Fan Dallas-Fort Worth that he will address the incident with Bryant.
“I understand why to a certain extent: They’re kneeling the ball, the game essentially is over. He’s an emotional guy; we’re all very emotional about what we do.
“But he needs to stay out on the field and I’ll address that with him today. And just explain why it’s important to do that and he’ll understand,” Garrett said.
