PITTSBURGH -- Center Sidney Crosby has already missed 13 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins with complications due to a concussion, and his return date is still unknown.

Coach Dan Bylsma addressed Crosby's status, as well as other injury news, during practice on Monday.

"The schedule with Sidney, we thought he would return sometime this week. There wasn't a definite date or definite day," he said. "Right now, I haven't had a lot of contact. He's in contact with our trainer just to let him know how he's feeling and so forth. There really isn't a timeframe, as far as we're concerned at this point, of getting him back into town."

Crosby left the team last week to visit his parents outside of Halifax, N.S.
