No timetable set for hockey star Crosby's return

Posted:

Sidney Crosby's agent says there's no set timetable for the Pittsburgh Penguins star to return from a concussion, though Crosby is expected to make a full recovery.

Agent Pat Brisson discussed Crosby's recovery and medical status on the team's official web site, apparently in response to reports out of Canada that say the 24-year-old's offseason training regimen has been shut down because of recurring symptoms from a concussion that has sidelined him since January.

Brisson says Crosby recently visited specialists in Michigan and Georgia. Brisson says Crosby's symptoms recurred when he got to 90 percent exertion in his offseason workouts, which were adjusted accordingly.

The Penguins open training camp on Sept. 16 and the regular season on Oct. 6, but Brisson says Crosby's return won't be dictated by those deadlines but by his health.
