Another Injury Update

Well, folks - and we all knew this was coming - Sid was placed on the injured reserve list today. The status change was made retroactive to the date he was injured (01-18-08). It is a formality that means he will be out for at least seven days.

With a high ankle sprain, however, you can reasonably expect him to be out anywhere from 4 weeks (like Max Talbot) to 8 weeks (like Marc-Andre Fleury). Here is the latest news on his condition from The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Sidney Crosby should know soon how much time he will miss with an ankle injury.

Crosby, the Penguins' captain, will be re-evaluated by team doctors Tuesday, and the club is optimistic it will receive a prognosis for his expected recovery from a high right ankle sprain.
I'll post the prognosis as soon as it becomes available. The Pens face the Caps tonight at 7:30pm Eastern. The game will be broadcast on the Versus network. GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
