Crosby Cleared For Contact

03/06/2012 at 2:43pm EST

Looks like Sid has been cleared for contact and could be playing soon.

From the Penguins website,

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has been cleared for full contact, but there is not timetable for a possible return to the lineup.

“I was cleared to do contact,” Crosby said. “We’ll see how that goes. There is no real timetable, but it’s a good step. Hopefully, I can keep the momentum and get out there soon.”

Crosby, who has been out of the lineup since Dec. 6 with concussion-like symptoms and a neck injury, has been symptom free for “a few days” and resumed contact practice with his teammates Tuesday afternoon.

“I’ve been through this before,” Crosby said. “Contact is the big step. It’s nice to be symptom free, but it’s not as fulfilling until you get out there. I just want to make sure that I take the right steps here and get back out there soon.”
