Crosby cleared for light workouts

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The normally quiet NHL All-Star break has produced some good news for Penguins fans. Center and captain Sidney Crosby, who has been out since Jan. 5 because of a concussion, has been cleared for light workouts.

Crosby was held out of any physical activity while he had concussion symptoms, which included headaches. He will have to remain symptom-free for his workouts to accelerate or for him to join his teammates at practice.

The Penguins don't resume practice until Monday and don't play again until Tuesday against the Rangers in New York. It's not known how long it might take Crosby to get back into game shape even if there are no setbacks.

The progress Crosby has made came too late for him to participate in the All-Star Game being held here Sunday. On Monday, he withdrew from the weekend events.

Crosby has missed nine games. He was leading the NHL in scoring with 67 points in 41 games when he got hurt but has been overtaken by Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos, who has 67 point in 51 games.
