Sidney Crosby still hasn't been cleared for contact.

That doesn't mean, however, that he is staying out of high-traffic areas in training-camp drills.

He regularly moved through and around swirls of bodies Sunday at practice at Consol Energy Center, something he found difficult to do during workouts in the spring.

"I'm trying to do everything but get hit right now," Crosby said.

Coach Dan Bylsma said "being in traffic and around people is a part of where he's at [in his recovery] right now."


Crosby said he went "all out" in on-ice sessions Saturday and Sunday, and plans to participate in another such workout today.

That means that, to this point, he hasn't suffered any concussion-related symptoms such as headaches or dizziness because of his work the first two days of camp.

"The last couple of days have been good," Crosby said. "It's been a pretty good test.

"I felt pretty good [Sunday]. I was tired. But it was nice."

He also reiterated his support for a ban on all blows to the head, intentional or otherwise.

"The more you think about it and the more I watched last year, you can't have that gray area," he said. "[With] the speed of the game and the physicality, you have to have a clear-cut rule."
