More than three weeks since suffering concussion like symptoms following the Penguins contest with the Boston Bruins on December 5, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has yet to show any kind of real progress in his rehab
The Penguins today finally broke their silence today regarding Crosby and the news was not promising. Head coach Dan Bylsma indicated today that Crosby is still dealing with “concussion like symptoms” and that Crosby remains limited to light workouts. The lack of progress for Crosby is concerning as the Penguins were optimistic that this wouldn’t be a prolonged recovery
The Penguins sources say are nowhere near a situation where all parties involved feel it would be best to shut Crosby down for the season, like the Flyers did with Chris Pronger. The Penguins internally remain highly optimistic that Crosby will play again this season
Bylsma also provided a small update on Kris Letang indicating that Letang is feeling better. Letang remains out indefinitely.
Also on the injury front, Paul Martin is expected to participate in tomorrow’s morning skate.
