McMURRAY, Pa. — The Pittsburgh Penguins may not fully know Sidney Crosby‘s health status until training camp begins, but they are encouraged with the star center ‘s recovery from a concussion, according to coach Dan Bylsma.

Bylsma said Tuesday while attending the team’s annual charity golf tournament that he is “hoping” Crosby will be ready to go for the start of camp in mid-September.

“Sidney’s progressed nicely this summer, he’s had a long summer, he’s worked out in June and July,” Bylsma said. “We’re hoping for Sidney to come back in and be ready to go for training camp. I know he’s worked out more now than he has probably the last three summers.”

Penguins general manager Ray Shero confirmed last week that the 24-year-old Crosby was experiencing post-concussion symptoms, although he did not know specifically what they were. The symptoms occurred when Crosby began accelerating his workouts.

When Crosby was forced to stop practicing during the Penguins’ first-round playoff loss to Tampa Bay in April, he said the symptoms predominantly were headaches.

In an attempt to refute media speculation that Crosby has stopped skating and might not be ready for the start of the season in October, Crosby’s agent, Pat Brisson issued a statement� Monday saying that, “Sidney hasn’t been shut down by anyone, He has simply adjusted his summer program according to the different needs for the appropriate recovery.”
