Report: Dez Bryant yells expletives at reporters after loss to Seattle

Dez Bryant had a quiet statistical game on Sunday against Seattle in his first time back on the field after recovering from a foot injury. 

But he made headlines with what transpired in the locker room after Dallas' 13-12 loss. 

As reported by USA TODAY, Bryant "started screaming at reporters, loud enough that it was heard across the entire room" after the game.

“Stay the [expletive] away …,” Bryant yelled, as transcribed by USA TODAY. “Why don’t you all get the [bleep] out of here? This is our (expletive) locker room. You (expletive) dirty (expletive).”

It's unclear what caused the discontent, but a tweet may give a clue. 

After Seattle's Ricardo Lockette suffered a scary injury during Sunday's game, FOX broadcast cameras appeared to show an emotional Bryant making a point to a Seahawks player. It was interpreted by a number of media outlets that Bryant was taunting Seattle after the injury. 

Bryant took to Twitter after the game to voice his displeasure in another expletive-laden moment. The tweet has since been deleted, but below is a screenshot.

Dallas is now 2-5 on the year with Philadelphia up next.

Redskins vs. Packers Week 3: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

After an abysmal home opener loss to the Indianapolis Colts, the Washington Redskins look to bounce back in Week 3 as they host the Green Bay Packers (1-0-1) Sunday at FedExField.

The two teams last met in November of 2016 as Washington walked away victorious, 42-24.

Rob Kelley rushed for 137 of the team's 515 total yards, including three touchdowns.

On the other side of the football, Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger is contributing to a defense which ranks first in yards per game (247.0) while only allowing an average of 161.0 passing yards per game.

In Sunday's loss to the Colts, Swearinger snagged two of Andrew Luck's passes for interceptions and is now two shy of tying a season high.

Washington is 15-20-1 all-time against Green Bay.

Expect Aaron Rodgers to be ready for the Redskins despite missed practices

Expect Aaron Rodgers to be ready for the Redskins despite missed practices

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers did not practice on Thursday. That was a second straight day missed due to a knee injury he sustained in the season opener. However, there is little doubt that he will be behind center at FedEx Field on Sunday when Green Bay takes on the Redskins

It should be clarified that no Packer practiced on Wednesday. Coach Mike McCarthy decided to cancel practice to give his team more recovery time as they played 70 minutes during a 29-29 tie against the Vikings. McCarthy cited the “unusual heat for this part of the country” and decided his team could use the rest more than work. 

But in their required injury report, the Packers said that Rodgers would not have practiced even if the team had held its scheduled session. On Thursday, Rodgers worked with other rehabbing players on a side field.

This sticks with the pattern that Rodgers followed last week. He also sat out practice on Friday before taking part in the team’s one-hour session on Saturday. 

The lack of practice did not seem to affect Rodgers too badly against the Vikings. He completed 30 of 42 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown. Even though he took four sacks, Rodgers got better as the game went on. In the second half, he passed for 201 yards, averaging 8.0 yards per pass attempt. 

Speaking to the Green Bay media on Thursday, Rodgers said that he is concerned about the knee getting worse as the season goes on. 

"Yeah, obviously that's a concern," Rodgers said via ESPN.com. "Hopefully it goes the other way though."

All Rodgers knows at this point is that he won’t be 100 percent when he takes the field on Sunday. 

"It just depends on how the week goes with the rehab and the recovery," Rodgers said. "Obviously, I'd love to be better than I was last week as far as health-wise but there's some factors that are out of my control."

Those factors obviously are out of the Redskins’ control, also. There hasn’t been any talk of Rodgers’ knee from Redskins Park this week. They are expecting him to be his usual self although his mobility may be somewhat impaired. 

That doesn’t mean that they will not try to rattle him. It’s always good to get after the opposing QB and deliver some hard hits. When that quarterback is wearing a large knee brace the target on him becomes even bigger and brighter. 

The Redskins’ pass rush has not been very effective so far this year as they have picked up just three sacks. Sunday would be a good time for Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, and the interior line to turn up the pressure.
