Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garret has backed Dez Bryant after his star walked off the field before the final whistle as the Cowboys were beaten against the Green Bay Packers, reports CBSSports.

With 1:21 remaining in the fourth quarter, Bryant walked off the pitch in frustration - which ultimately didn't go down well with fans. 

However, despite insisting that Bryant needs to stay on the field, Garret understands that the star was caught up in the emotion. 

Speaking to 105.3 The Fan Dallas-Fort Worth, Garret said: "We'll address that with Dez today.

"I understand why to a certain extent, they're kneeling the ball, the game essentially is over, he's an emotional guy, we're all very emotional about what we do.

"But he needs to stay out on the field and I'll address that with him today. And just explain why it's important to do that and he'll understand."

Garret went on to suggest that Bryant has the ultimate respect for his teammates and will learn from the situation. 

He continued by saying: "He loves his teammates, he loves this team, has a great passion for winning. You have to understand how to handle yourself in those situations. He'll learn from this situation."

And after the defeat to the Packers, the Cowboys will be desperate to return to winning ways. They take on the Washington Redskins in their next fixture at the FedEx Field on Sunday 22 December. 

It will be interesting to see just how Bryant reacts after the recent criticism he has faced.
