Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and defenseman Kris Letang returned to practice Tuesday.

Fleury, who hasn't played since Dec. 14 because of a concussion, took shots. Coach Mike Sullivan said it was progress but there's no timetable yet for his return.

"I felt pretty good out there today," Fleury said in comments tweeted by the Penguins. "I'm not sure when I'm going to be back. It's going to be gradual."

Letang has played in three games since the beginning of December. He sustained an upper-body injury Dec. 9 against the Colorado Avalanche. Letang returned Saturday against the Minnesota Wild but took a hit from Wild center Jarret Stoll that caused him to briefly leave the game and then sat out Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets as a precautionary measure.

"Letang had a pretty good practice today," Sullivan said. "We'll see how he is tomorrow morning. We will make decisions from there."

The Penguins host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.
