Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says he's sorry for stepping out of bounds during a second quarter reception Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
The crowd at Cowboys Stadium booed Bryant after he stepped out of bounds on the play, and then booed him a few times when it was shown on the mega-screen.
"I was hearing it. I was," Bryant said via USA Today. "Man, that hurt my heart."
Bryant said he didn't know where he was on the field when he decided not to take a hit on second down and three to go.
"When I seen where we was at, I was like, Damn. I didn't mean to do that," Bryant says. "It's not like me. It's not like me to run out of bounds. I seen like four or five guys coming so I took a step out. I didn't see the first down marker. That's my bad. I should've known where we was at on the field."
Bryant ended the day with 12 receptions for 145-yards receiving.
"I like what I've got going on right now. It's me being on top of my stuff. Coach stays on me all the time, and I love it. I don't get down, I take it all in."
