Sidney Crosby Out Indefinitely With Concussion-Like Symptoms

Sidney Crosby’s return to hockey was short. After returning to the ice last month to the delight of hockey fans everywhere, Crosby is again out with concussion-like symptoms. Crosby noticed the symptoms after last week’s 3-1 loss to Boston. Crosby didn’t appear to be involved in any collisions that resulted in contact to his head.

“Not (feeling) bad. I’m not happy about watching,” Crosby said Monday after missing practice. “But I have to make sure with these sort of things that I’m careful and making sure I’m 100 percent before coming back. No timetable.”

Crosby is optimistic that the process won’t take as long as it did last time (11 months) because the symptoms aren’t as bad. He will have to go through the same steps he did last time before he is cleared to play. Crosby scored 12 points in 8 games this season, but only scored these two goals. The Penguins are tied with the Rangers for the second-most points in the East.
