Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant apologized for leaving the field before the clock ran out in Sunday’s loss, explaining that he didn’t want to be seen crying on the sideline.

Bryant left the sideline of Sunday’s game with 1:21 left on the clock as the Green Bay Packers were running out the clock after completing an epic 37-36 victory, rallying from a 26-3 halftime deficit.

“I was wrong,” Bryant told reporters during a Monday morning visit to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth. “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.”
