According to a statement on the team website, Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has visited experts in Michigan and Georgia lately to monitor his progress as he tries to return from a concussion.
Pat, his negotiator, informed pittsburghpenguins.com, “We’ve had him see leading specialists because we want to make sure he gets the best care possible, the Penguins always encourage their players to get second and third medical opinions and have been very supportive of this. And we’ve been talking to (general manager) Ray Shero every step of the way.”
The experts wait for a full recovery but have set no schedule. Crosby has not played since he received hits to the head in back-to-back games in the January 1 Winter Classic and on January 5. He has been working out this summer. According to the website, he began having some headaches again but when he got to 90% effort in his workouts. His doctors and instructors altered his workouts accordingly at that point.
“We always knew this was going to be a progressive recovery – based on how he felt, with a concussion, there is not a finite recovery period like with a shoulder injury or a knee injury. That’s why we’ve never even set a specific goal for a return date like the start of training camp or Oct. 1 or anything else. He will play when he is symptom free,” said Pat Brisson, Crosby’s negotiator.
Statements in current weeks said that Crosby has had his preparation shut down for the reason of the return of concussion indications. The group and Crosby’s camp had deprived of that.
Brisson said, “We wish we could provide more specific details about Sidney’s recovery, but a concussion is a different kind of injury, it’s not something you can check with an x-ray. And you can’t predict a precise recovery period. It’s all about the way he feels. He has been feeling a lot better but we want to give him all the time he needs to make a full recovery. He’s only 24, and he’s got a lot of great years ahead of him.”
Crosby is anticipated to come back to Pittsburgh in a couple weeks. The Penguins open training camp on September 16 and begin the period in Vancouver on October 6. Crosby has not talked to the news media throughout his training this summer but he discharged a report in the course of the website.
“I appreciate all the support I’ve received from my family, friends, teammates and fans and from the entire Penguins organization, I know they only want the best for my health, and for me to be fully ready when I return to game action,” Crosby said.

Mardy Fish provided himself small credit for saving two second-set match points versus John Isner.
Fish said, “When you’re in that position, it’s almost over. I was lucky to get out of it. I played some good points. I don’t think he missed any first serves there. I stuck some returns and put some balls in play.”
Fish hit Isner in the final for the second straight year at the Atlanta Tennis Championships, receiving a 3-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-2 success Sunday in Norcross, Ga.
The world’s No. 9 player recovered from a 5-1 deficit in the tiebreak.
Fish said, “I didn’t necessarily change anything tactically. I took care of my serve games a little bit better once I lost serve in the first game of the second.”
Isner was attempting to win successive affairs for the first time in his profession the same of what Fish did in 2010 at Newport and Atlanta.
However, the 6-foot-9 final service game of Isner consisted of two dual-faults. He committed 29 unforced errors to Fish’s 11 through two sets.
