Sidney Crosby Did Not Meet With Doctors Tuesday, Despite Reports

There were indications and reports out there that Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby was meeting with doctors Tuesday to determine if he was ready to return to action following the effects of multiple concussions.

According to Crosby, that meeting did not happen.

"I don't know who said I had an appointment today but I don't," Crosby said. "It's the same as usual -- I feel good. It went good today and I'm excited to be home."

Penguins general manager Ray Shero had said on Monday that he anticipated Crosby would visit his concussion specialist Tuesday, but that was apparently wishful thinking.

Crosby did participate in a morning skate without contact as he's been doing. He did accidentally collide with assistant coach Tony Granato but there were no repercussions.

Crosby usually meets with a specialist to review his process once a week. That meeting may still happen at some point this week and could be impetus for his imminent return.
