Crosby says Concussion-Like Symptoms Have Returned


Sidney Crosby has suffered yet another setback in his valiant return to the NHL. Crosby is suffering from concussion-like symptoms and is out indefintely. “There is no timetable for his return.”

Aaaaaaauuuuuuggggggghhhhhh! My nightmare has returned!!!!!

“I’m not feeling bad,” Crosby, who did not practice Monday, said according to tweets from Penguins website writer Sam Kasan. “Just have to be careful and make sure I’m 100 percent before I return.” “You have to listen to your body,” he said. “Passing ImPACT (a baseline test for a concussion) was encouraging, but it’s not everything.”

Crosby, who has missed the Pittsburgh Penguins’ last two games, said Monday that he has had concussion-like symptoms for nearly a week since playing the Boston Bruins last week on December 5th. Tests show that Crosby has not had another concussion, but he says he is going by how he feels — and, right now, he feels it is better to rest.  He will not play Tuesday night against Detroit and is listed as day to day. The Red Wings’ game will be the 23rd game he has missed this season.

Obviously, this is bad news. Not only for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but for the hockey world and of course Sidney Crosby. I’m not a doctor, but I can tell you that experiencing another concussion-like problem so soon after his major concussion in January isn’t good. Speculators and alarmists will now start sounding off about if Crosby’s career is now over. Which in all honesty, is a fair question. There is no doubt in my mind that he will play again. But does this mean that Crosby is now concussion prone? If that is true, how long will he last in the NHL? I know it’s too soon to tell, but again, all fair questions. We will all have to wait and see what happens. I will be following this story closely and keep you all posted.
