PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dez Bryant was back on the field this weekend and Dez Bryant is back in the news for the wrong reasons.
After the Cowboys’ fifth straight loss on Sunday, a 13-12 loss to the Seahawks, Bryant went on a complete tirade directed at the media. Bryant, playing in his first game since getting injured in Week 1, apparently taunted Ricardo Lockette as the Seahawks’ WR lay motionless on the field after suffering a vicious hit.
Bryant was caught on tape thanks to social media yelling, “That’s what the [expletive] he gets!”
After the game, Bryant vehemently denied the claims that he taunted the injured Lockette.
“Stay the (expletive) away …,” Bryant said via USA Today. “Why don’t you all get the (expletive) out of here? This is our (expletive) locker room. You (expletive) dirty (expletive).”
“I won’t ever, ever, ever, ever wish bad on a player that’s been knocked down,” Bryant said post game via ESPN.com. “C’mon, man. Stop with the [expletive]”. “Not once did I say that’s what you get. I got on one knee and prayed for that man.
“I got on one knee and prayed for him. C’mon, man. Don’t put clips together and do that.”
Bryant caught just two balls for 12 yards. The 2-5 Cowboys will host the 3-4 Eagles next, on Sunday Night Football.
