Center Sidney Crosby practiced with the Penguins on Wednesday at Consol Energy Center, but he is not likely to play Thursday night at Tampa Bay.

Coach Dan Bylsma said Wednesday there is no change in the status of Crosby, who is cleared for contract practices but has not played since Jan. 5 because of a concussion. He has not acknowledged any symptoms, but Crosby has not spoken to the media since Nov. 7.

The Penguins open a two-game road trip Thursday night with a Stanley Cup-playoff rematch against Tampa Bay, which eliminated them from the postseason in Round 1 last spring. The Penguins also play at Florida on Saturday night.

It is not known if Crosby could play at Florida.
