The word "emotional" was the rationale used by Bryant and his teammates for the wide receiver's early exit.
Bryant took some time Monday, during a visit to the Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, to address his decision to walk off the field.
"I was wrong," Bryant said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "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."
This will be a storyline that takes the focus off the second-half debacle the Cowboys delivered Sunday.
