He stated he is at this point 90% recovered. At least he's not going to rush anything.

I don't think you can ever fully recover from a brain injury and I dread the thought if he ever gets a hit to the head again. One more hit to the head, even accidentally falling into the boards or hitting his head on the ice, could have serious repercussions for him down the road. We don't know many concussions he's had in the past and the seriousness of this concussion could be from the cumulative effects of previous hits to the head.

Some good news however we'll see how it goes.

On the first day of training camp, it appears Sidney Crosby has moved one step closer to returning.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Crosby has been cleared to practice without contact as he continues to recover from post-concussion symptoms.

While there is no timetable currently set for his return, Crosby said last week that it is likely he will play at some point this season.

"It's a difficult thing to go though and trust me, I'd love to have answers myself sometimes when I was going through that but it's not as easy as that," said Crosby at the news conference.

Crosby said that he feels more positive about recovering from the injury now than he has in a long time and that he is finally over the worse and on the path to making progress. He said that he never really considered retiring.

Crosby suffered a concussion during the Winter Classic against the Washington Capitals on New Year's Day. He returned four days later but left the January 5 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning after being hit into the boards. Crosby sat out the remainder of the season

REPORT: ONE OF CROSBY'S DOCTORS FEELS HE'S READY FOR CONTACT

A chiropractor who has been examining Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby told a Pittsburgh radio station that he feels Crosby is ready for physical contact, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"Sid's as ready (for physical contact) as just about any player in the NHL," Florida-based chiropractor Ted Carrick said, according to the report. Carrick was one of two doctors alongside Crosby at his September 7 press conference.

"Now it is more a situation of his physicality and getting back into shape."

The report went on to say that officials at UPMC, a concussion clinic where Crosby has been receiving treatment, declined to address the star's status but added that they were "surprised" by Carrick's comments.

A clinic spokesperson also said that Michael Collins, the other doctor at the Sept. 7 press conference, stands behind comments he made at the time.

The Penguins declined to comment but the team sources said the team was not happy with Carrick talking to the radio station, according to the report.

The 24-year-old was recently cleared to practice without contact as the Penguins opened camp on Friday.

How many other doctors would have to agree with this assessment and isn't it still going to be anyone's guess when that will be?

Sidney Crosby participated in a controlled scrimmage on Sunday as he continues his comeback from concussion-like symptoms that have kept him off the ice since January. Crosby took face-offs and worked on set plays alongside his teammates in his first five-on-five action since training camp opened last weekend.

The former MVP says he has been symptom free throughout camp but continues to wear a white helmet during practice to indicate he still hasn't been cleared for contact.

"Everything's been really good," Crosby said. "I haven't ran into any issues so far so it's been pretty smooth."

Crosby has worked relentlessly during the first week of camp during drills, often to the point of exhaustion.

Crosby added he's been impressed with the Penguins, who are unbeaten in three pre-season games. Centre Evgeni Malkin, who missed the second half of last season with a knee injury, has two goals and three assists in two games.

When Malkin and Crosby will be on the ice at the same time remains uncertain. There still is no timetable for Crosby's return, though he considers Sunday's work another step in the recovery process.

"I think it's been a lot of fun just being out there and competing and doing typical things you're used to doing as a hockey player," he said.

The Penguins continue the pre-season on Tuesday against Los Angeles in Kansas City.

His return (whenever it may be) is really unfortunate for Montreal and the rest of the league , but with the patience being shown throughout the healing process you can almost guarantee he'll be back to 100% Sid pretty quickly, so good for him.

actually i think its a good thing for us. I think we can take the penguins in a game. It helps us when the win
