Pens GM: No concussion for Crosby

By Pierre LeBrun

The Pittsburgh Penguins refuted rumors Thursday that superstar captain Sidney Crosby was suffering from concussion symptoms.

"He suffered a broken jaw," GM Ray Shero said. "Contrary to recent rumors, there is no sign of any concussion symptoms or concussion at this time. We will continue to monitor things as we go forward, but at this time we are dealing with a broken jaw."

Crosby's agent Pat Brisson, via email, also vehemently denied his client had concussion symptoms. Crosby suffered a concussion in January 2011 and missed the rest of that season and much of the next.
