Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant left the game early against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Cowboys had a 23-point lead disappear in the loss and Bryant left the game early to head to the locker room. Bryant tweeted about it last night, but he elaborated during an appearance a local hospital.
“I was wrong,” Bryant said, via Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “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.”
“Whenever I’m out on the football field, it’s all about the team,” Bryant said Monday. “I’m a team guy and that’s what I think about and that’s what I focus on. I extremely, extremely apologize for leaving, but my teammates and coaches understand. I am a very emotional player and we didn’t finish. It [leaving the field] had nothing to do with my teammates.”
