Sidney Crosby Yet To Resume Skating After April Setback In Concussion Recovery

It's been five months since he's played a game of hockey, and still, Sidney Crosby has not been able to resume working out since suffering a set back in his concussion recovery in April. That news comes via a new report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Crosby's agent, Pat Brisson, said by email today that Crosby "hasn't been cleared yet by the medical staff."

Crosby was diagnosed with a concussion Jan. 6 and did not play the balance of the season or in the playoffs, when the Penguins fell to Tampa Bay in the first round.

Crosby began skating again in mid-March, and he joined his teammates for pre-game, morning skates at the end of March. During the postseason, however, we learned that Crosby had suffered a setback while taking part in those morning skates, even though he hadn't yet been cleared for contact.

He hasn't skated since, and now it's been about a month since he's done so. No progress. We wait. The Penguins wait. The NHL waits. Crosby waits.
