Any news on this?
There has been no real news. He has been skating lightly and working out but nothing practice wise. Until they can increase his work load, this will be the extent of what he does.
As to your question on whether he will return or not, I believe he will. If there is a setback than that changes things but I think that if he wasn't going to return, they would not have him skating. I still think he's another 2 months away probably (at least) but the fact that he hasn't shut down is a positive sign. I believe he said himself that this one isn't nearly as bad as the one last year
Latest update-ish report from Bylsma today:
Like Tomahawk I believe Crosby will return but when that is anyone's guess.On Crosby:
I don’t have an update for you besides that he is exercising. What that is in terms of heart rate and activity is different on different days. That’s where Sid is at right now in his rehab.
I hope he does
Update today saying he will travel on the road trip and skate on his own. He will also adress the media in the next few days according to Dan
Also i dont know how good this source is but a friend of mine his girlfriends friend brother works for the medical staff and is saying Crosby might have Spinal Cord damage. I don't believe this at all but if it comes out to be true it would suck.
I had once heard about the spinal cord injury on Crosby as well it was more on the upper vertebrae then lower which would make sense. I would guess it could be true think of a whiplash patient how they get their heads snapped back and can injure their vertebrae. So it could be plausible, I could see it being true. Some also believe that holistically speaking that with a spinal cord being out of place especially in the higher vertebrae it could cause a host of problems including the inability to heal quickly. This however has yet to be 100% proven from what I know. I do feel however that with more research I think we should concussion proof Sid the Kid by using exercise. I wish I had more connections with the Pens organization I would put Sid when he was healthier through a specialized lifting routine in order to help prevent further concussions. I would prescribe him that and a dose of Deer Antler Velvet to heal up quicker.
Well like we mentioned in the other thread, Crosby went to Atlanta today to visit the specialist he was seeing last year:
Not sure what to take from it, overall positive I guess. Not good hearing he is still having some issues but it goes on to say that Shero said this is a "good thing" and there was no setback after skating
does sound positive and could be great news
Ya i think it is good news
He is back in Pittsburgh:
Apparently he was skating in California recently but no other "real" news was given. Not sure if it is good or bad overall
Well looks like he did have a neck injury after all:
Not sure if it is significant at all considering it is fully healed but interesting regardless. I have no idea how that many doctors could miss it until now
