Sidney Crosby Injury Update: Penguins Star Says Last Few Weeks Have Been Symptom-Free

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby spoke to the media a bit today after Penguins practice. "The last few weeks for me have been great. Couldn't ask for more," Crosby told reporters after practice. The star player is recovering from a concussion that has kept him out for quite a while and is the reason he's starting the season on injured reserve. Crosby noted that he's been symptom-free for a little less than a month, but he's unsure of a date to return to the ice despite feeling what he described as "great."

Even though Crosby has been placed on injured reserve to start the 2011 season, he does not fall under the 7-Day rule because he was on injured reserve last season. This means that Crosby can come back at any time, but he's not expected back within the next week, regardless. Head injuries in all sports are becoming a big issue and Crosby is a big proponent of head injury awareness and safety. You can bet he's not going to come back until he's ready.
