NHL superstar Sidney Crosby is likely out for the season with concussion symptoms according to a tweet from Howard Eskin of FOX 29 and 94 WIP Radio.

The league’s leading scorer and most valuable player favorite was listed as out of the Penguins lineup indefinitely on Monday two days after having his jaw broken by a puck against the Islanders.

Contrary to rumors that are out there, Sidney Crosby does not have any concussion symptoms, his agent Pat Brisson says. Ray Shero says same

Sid does not have concussion symptoms. Can't make it more clear than that.

 

 

Nice research SI.

Anything for a click, eh ESPN? This report has already come out as false but "Hell, let's post it without actually checking it's legitimacy!"

My mistake. Glad it's Sports Illustrated and not ESPN then. SI has a long standing tradition of not know what the hell is going on in hockey.

I'm sure Yohe (Penguins beat writer) and the rest of the Pittsburgh sports media are completely in the dark about this, yet a loudmouth Philadelphia radio host has the scoop.

 

Jesus Christ, SI, this is just embarrassing.

No one else is reporting this. Not Penguins beat writers, not anyone. Does SI just post "news" when someone tweets it without any verification? This is terrible.

man between bergeron and crosby neither one of these guys can seem to catch a break, and this is what I was afraid of when they said there were no concussion symptoms, and now you wonder if the next concussion will end his career
