Sidney Crosby Injury Update: Penguins Star Travels, Will Skate On Own

There is still no timetable for the return of Sidney Crosby to competitive hockey, but there is some good news coming out about his recovery from a concussion -- or "symptoms," considering it's never been announced that he's suffered a second concussion.

Pittsburgh Penguins Head Coach Dan Bylsma revealed on Wednesday that Crosby will travel with the team on an upcoming road trip and that he plans to skate. He will be skating on his own and is still not participating in contact practice.

Said Bylsma, about the trip and Crosby's rehab:

"Tonight, Sidney Crosby will be joining us on the road trip. He will be skating during this trip. He also will at some point in time address the media as well. No set plan, but this will happen in the next few days. (Crosby) has been working out with light exercises in the weight room and on the bike. We'll be glad to see him on the ice."

Crosby missed the second half of last season and the beginning of this season with a serious concussion. He returned on Nov. 21 and played eight games before he took another blow to the head, putting him right back on injured reserve with another concussion.
