News: Crosby (undisclosed) was held out of practice for precautionary reasons Saturday. Impact: Crosby was held out after reportedly having a good practice Friday. The star doesn't appear to be in danger of missing any regular season time barring a setback or another injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby skated with his teammates Friday when the Pittsburgh Penguins opened training camp. The team had announced on Thursday that Crosby would be held out of the early days of training camp with an unspecified minor injury. Impact: The reigning NHL MVP said he was cleared to practice on Friday morning and wasted little time jumping onto the ice at Consol Energy Center. He skated for about 50 minutes before leaving. The 27-year-old declined to elaborate on how he was injured, saying only that it occurred a few days before camp began. (STATS, 12:05pm)

News: Crosby (undisclosed) practiced Friday, despite an early report that stated the MVP would be held out of the beginning of training camp, ABC News reports. Impact: Not only did Crosby practice, but he did not wear a red non-contact jersey, and participated in most of the practice. If Crosby is still battling an injury, it appears that it is not serious enough to keep him off the ice. If he is already healthy enough to participate in training camp, expect Crosby to be near 100 percent when the regular season rolls around, though we'll place the caveat that obviously something's been bugging him to some degree - such as a shoulder injury or minor soreness from his wrist issues last season. Or it could be some combo of both, that again, is not enough to keep him off the ice.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby will miss the beginning of training camp with an undisclosed injury, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Impact: Crosby played with an injured wrist toward the end of last season, and it's also possible he's suffering from another ailment, such as a shoulder injury. It appears he'll be able to open the regular season, but there's an added measure of risk with Crosby after he decided against summer wrist surgery and now has this additional mystery injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby will be held out of the early part of training camp after suffering an injury while preparing for camp. Impact: Evgeni Malkin is similarly being held out in the early going, so it's more than likely just the case where the organization wants to keep its two stars fresh for the start of the regular season. Crosby said last week that he was fully recovered from the wrist injury that bothered him during the postseason, so don't let this concern you too much.(RotoWire, )

News: Crosby declared Monday that he is 100 percent healthy after having dealt with a nagging wrist injury for much of the postseason, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: Crosby entertained the idea of surgery to correct the wrist issue in the summer, but rest and rehab ultimately proved to be the solution. He's back working out in Pittsburgh in preparation for training camp, and should be poised for another run at the Art Ross Trophy in 2014-15. If Crosby wasn't already being drafted as the top overall fantasy skater, the news that he's fully healthy should do the trick.(RotoWire, )
