PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) –Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will meet with doctors again this week.

The Pittsburgh Tribune Review reported he would meet with his medical team today to determine if he can be cleared for contact.

However, Crosby told KDKA-TV that there is no planned meeting with doctors today, but he will meet with them sometime this week. At this point, there is still no timetable for his return.

His medical team consists of Dr. Michael Collins of the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program. Dr. Ted Carrick is also part of Crosby’s medical team and appeared with Crosby at a press conference last month, though it’s unknown if he’ll be involved in today’s evaluation.

Crosby hasn’t played in an NHL game since Jan. 5 when he suffered the second of back-to-back blows to the head. The first hit came from Washington’s David Steckel in the Winter Classic Jan. 1, followed by the second from Tampa Bay’s Victor Hedman Jan. 5.

Crosby made a brief return to practice last season during the first round of the playoffs but was never cleared for contact. He has participated in every practice since being cleared to join the team in a non-contact role Sept. 17.

NHL.com also reported Crosby could be cleared as early as today.
