PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Penguins winger Tyler Kennedy, who has missed the last 10 games recovering from a high-ankle sprain, was cleared to practice with teammates Thursday.

There still is no time line for his return to the lineup, but Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said it’s a positive step.

“I feel pretty good,” Kennedy said, according to the Penguins’ official website. “Still a little bit weak, but I feel like I’m getting better every day, so I feel good.”

Kennedy will not play Saturday night at Colorado, but could potentially return at some point during a four-game homestand that starts Monday against Phoenix.

“It’s one of those things you definitely don’t want to rush,” Kennedy said. “You definitely don’t want to come back not 100 percent. You want to come back and make sure you’re 100 percent. So I’m trying to make sure I’m ready to rock when I come back.”
