WASHINGTON (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby is ready to resume skating.

Coach Dan Bylsma said before Pittsburgh's game at the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night that Crosby will skate when he joins the team on its current road trip.

That includes visits to the Panthers on Friday and the Lightning on Sunday.

Out with lingering concussion symptoms, Crosby hasn't played since Dec. 5. He was sidelined for nearly 11 months before that because of a concussion before returning Nov. 21 with two goals. Crosby had 12 points in eight games before being sidelined again.

Bylsma said Crosby has been working out in the weight room and riding a bike. Bylsma added: "I'll certainly be glad to see him on the ice."

The coach said Crosby will speak to the media soon.
