PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby will meet with a specialist this week because of lingering concussionlike symptoms.

Crosby hasn't played since Dec. 5 following a recurrence of the symptoms that sidelined him for more than 10 months last year. The team says Crosby will work with chiropractic neurologist Dr. Ted Carrick, who treated Crosby for similar symptoms last summer.

The 24-year-old star skated with his teammates for the first time in more than a month last Friday, a first step in what could be another long comeback. He has had dizziness and headaches and problems exerting himself at a high level.

There is no timetable for Crosby's return.
