Sidney Crosby Injury: No. 87 Misses Practice After Concussion Symptoms Return

Sidney Crosby was set to miss just two games after suffering a setback in his concussion recovery last week, but it appears as though he's out indefinitely, although officially listed as questionable. He missed practice on Monday morning and told the media that symptoms have returned.

Via PensInsideScoop on Twitter, here's Crosby speaking with the media in Pittsburgh:

I'm not feeling bad. Just have to be careful and make sure I'm 100 percent before I return. No timeframe. You have to listen to your body. Passing ImPACT was encouraging but it's not everything. Have had some symptoms. Been doing light exertion. It's the same recovery routine again but hopefully not as long.

Hopefully. Hopefully not as long. Ugh.

It's hard to tell if this is just bad luck or what, as it seemed Crosby was 100 percent when he returned to the Penguins lineup less than two weeks ago. Any criticism that the Penguins rushed their star back into the lineup seems silly, given the fact that they were extra cautious with him throughout the entire recovery process.
