Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant says Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is being untruthful about his characterization of the confrontation between the two players on Thursday.
"This guy bumped into me, like, 'What's up? Where I'm from, we unload the clip.' So, pretty much, whatever you want to do," Norman said after Washington's 31-26 loss to Dallas. "I'm not that guy that see a challenge in front of my face and back down. That's not me. That's not what you're going to get."
Bryant took to Twitter shortly after to refute that account.

Bryant finished with five catches for 72 yards in Thursday's game, though not all of those came while being defended by Norman.
