Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was seen leaving the field early on Sunday before another frustrating loss was in the books.

Dallas let a 26-3 halftime lead slip away and lost 37-36 at home to Green Bay.

Bryant hasn’t been afraid to show his emotions on the sidelines, but he wasn’t holding back anger this time. Instead, he was holding back tears.

"I cried when I got into the locker room, and I didn’t want to show that obviously on the sideline," Bryant told the Dallas Morning News during a visit to a local children’s hospital on Monday.

"I’m a team guy. I extremely, extremely apologize for leaving, but my teammates and coaches understand," Bryant said. "I’m a very emotional player and we didn’t finish."

In Cowboys’ collapse earlier this season against the Lions, Bryant was visibly upset on the sideline in the final seconds.
