PITTSBURGH (KDKA) –Penguins fans have been waiting for nearly a month to get an update on the status of Sidney Crosby.
On Wednesday, the update came from head coach Dan Bylsma and it was all too familiar.
After the team’s practice, Bylsma said that Crosby is doing light workouts and is still experiencing some concussion symptoms.
Crosby has not played since Dec. 5, when a collision with Boston’s David Krejci appears to have brought back the symptoms.
Krejci was in front of the Penguins’ bench as Crosby moved over to join the battle for the puck. Krejci turned around and his elbow struck Crosby in the head.
Crosby played the rest of the game and apparently began experiencing symptoms the following day.
According to the Penguins’ website, Bylsma also gave an update on Kris Letang’s concussion status after practice.
He said Letang is feeling better and is progressing in his recovery.
Letang has been out since Nov. 26, when he suffered a broken nose in addition to a concussion on a hit by Montreal’s Max Pacioretty.
Letang returned for overtime and scored the game-winning goal.
The Penguins’ next game is Thursday night against the Philadelphia Flyers at CONSOL Energy Center
