Dez Bryant is a physical specimen, who only knows how to play the game at one speed.  It might be catching up to Bryant at this point.

Fox Sports South West is reporting that the Cowboys are terribly concerned about a bulging disk in Bryant’s lower back.

While the Cowboys indicated Bryant was held back in practice as a precaution, the receiver’s injury could be disconcerting. Citing sources close to Bryant, Fox Sports Southwest reported that there are “concerns he is suffering from a bulging or herniated disc in his back and that measures being taken to treat the ailment go far beyond precautionary.”

“C’mon, you know I’m going to play,” Bryant said in the locker room while declining to address the specifics of his condition.
