While speaking to reporters today after Penguins practice, Sidney Crosby said that he has been cleared for contact.

Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review broke the news through his Twitter feed with quotes from Crosby.

Dave Molinari, a Pittsburgh Penguins beat writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has Crosby’s return as early as Sunday’s game at home against the Boston Bruins

Crosby said that he could play, but only if there are no setbacks.

This is the most news that Crosby has given about his return to the Penguins since he suffered concussion-like symptoms against the Bruins on December 5. Back then, Crosby said the relapse didn’t send him back to square one but that it could be a while before he'd play again. 

Then, in February, Crosby was diagnosed with a soft-tissue injury in his neck that mimics the symptoms of a concussion while being significantly more treatable. Crosby began treatment and the team said he would return when he was symptom-free. 

From the news that has come out today, it looks like Crosby is finally symptom-free and ready to return to action. 

Now let’s see if Crosby can stay symptom-free enough to resume his already-stellar career.
