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

The former Oklahoma State receiver had 11 catches for 153 yards including a outstanding touchdown catch in the loss.

But Bryant drew criticism again when he left the bench to go to the locker room with 1:21 left in the game, as Green Bay was running out the clock.
