Injury Troubles for Sir Sid?

This is an older post from Sid's first year in the NHL. If you're looking for information about his high ankle sprain from January 18, 2008, click here.

Ruh roh! It looks like El Sid may be facing his first stint in the press box thanks to a sore ankle.

From Shawna Richer, Crosby's stalker:

Sidney Crosby's naked ankle peeked from the gap between his left shoe and hem of black slacks. On his first National Hockey League road trip to Florida, the Penguins rookie looked like a resident; bare feet in dress shoes is a decidedly local fashion statement.

Those feet, among all the other parts of him, are the future of the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise, and on Saturday afternoon, he limped to his stall in the visitors' dressing room at the St. Pete Times Forum.

Sidney Crosby could miss today's game at Tampa Bay with a bruised left foot.

Crosby was hit in the foot by a shot during the third period of the Penguins' 6-3 loss Friday night at Florida. He did not take part in practice yesterday and is listed as questionable.

Crosby said yesterday the foot was better, but still a little stiff.

"We'll see ... I think it depends on the swelling," Crosby said of whether he will play against the Lightning. "If it's swollen like this, we'll probably just wait. If it's still swollen, and because it's swollen, the left foot probably doesn't fit in a skate."

Any game missed is crucial in the Calder Race with Alexander Ovechkin. Ankle injuries can really be bothersome and cause problems even when the player is playing.
