PITTSBURGH — Doctors say that Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is recovering but there is no timeline for a return to action.

Several concussion experts spoke at a Penguins news conference to update Crosby’s health status.

Dr. Michael Collins says of Crosby’s recovery: “It is approaching normal limits. It is not there yet.”

Crosby took part in his normal off-season workout program but his headaches returned when he got to 90 per cent exertion in his workouts.

Crosby says it’s been a “tough road” but he feels good mentally and never considered retirement.

Training camp opens Sept. 16 and Pittsburgh plays its first regular-season game Oct. 6.
