SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby skated with his teammates for the first time in more than a month on Friday but still has no idea when he'll be cleared to practice, let alone see action in a game.

Crosby skated for 27 minutes at the end of the Penguins morning skate before their game Friday night against the Florida Panthers. It was the first time he's been on the ice since developing concussion-like symptoms following a loss to Boston on Dec. 5.

Says Crosby: "The symptoms are getting a lot better, but I wouldn't say (I'm) symptom free. But I'm allowed to lightly exert, and that's a positive."

The 24-year-old Crosby suffered similar symptoms last January and missed more than 10 months.
