PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins have no plans on rushing star Sidney Crosby back to the ice.

General manager Ray Shero said Monday it's too early to tell if Crosby will be ready when training camp begins next month. The former MVP hasn't played since being diagnosed with a concussion in January. He missed Pittsburgh's final 48 games, including a loss to Tampa Bay in the playoffs.

Crosby has spent the summer working out in Canada and Shero said the 24-year-old is ``progressing well.'' Shero acknowledged Crosby continues to deal with symptoms related to the concussion, but added the issues have not forced him to stop training.

Shero expects Crosby to return to Pittsburgh a week before camp opens and said Crosby won't play until he is ``100 percent.''
