Dez Bryant will be playing Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with an extremely heavy heart. According to sideline reporter Kristi Scales via CBS Local, Bryant's father passed away on Saturday.

Scales reports that Bryant was told the news on Saturday when the team arrived in Pittsburgh for the game. Bryant has always been an emotional player, so he'll have some added motivation for Sunday's game.

The cause of his father's death is unclear as of now.
