Although the Penguins remain hopeful that Sidney Crosby will return at somepoint this season he and there’s still time where he should be able to return, the possibility of Sidney Crosby missing the rest of the season is not that far fetched as things are not progressing for the Penguins captain.
Crosby who began very mild light activities about 10 days ago, halted exercises late last week.
He is currently visiting his parents and his agent Pat Brisson told Darren Dreger of TSN.ca, that Crosby is “resting” and “until he is symptom free, he will not be able to resume exercising.”
Sources say, the Penguins captain is considered at least 10-14 days away from begining any kind of normal workouts.
The sense right now is that his return could very well be at least 6 weeks away.
One unconfirmed report comes from sportsnet.ca via Mike Brophy: “Told Crosby tried light workout and immediately saw black dots and stars. Not even close to starting light workouts again.”
The Penguins are likely to deny that as questions will soon rise that the Penguins cleared him too early for any activity.
The Penguins are formulating their trade deadline plans with the idea that Crosby will be back in the lineup at somepoint next month.
