Penguins center Sidney Crosby, who did not play after Jan. 5 because of a concussion, said today he is optimistic about playing next season but admitted to suffering a setback in his rehabilitation recently.
Crosby said he stopped skating with his teammates during non-contact practices and game-day skates because he had again begun to suffer concussion-related symptoms "about a week and a half ago."
"I started to get some symptoms," Crosby said as he and other players were cleaning out their lockers at Consol Energy Center. "I started to ramp things up as far as working out and skating, and I got a little bit of symptoms. I had to take a step back."
Asked if the symptoms were headaches, he said, "Yeah, all that stuff that comes with it. Up to that point, the progression had gone pretty well."
He has not resumed working out and said he intends to remain in the area for an unspecified period of time, even though the Penguins' season ended Wednesday night.
