Broken jaw seems pretty probable and where there's smoke there's probably fire.

Athletes have played with broken jaws in the past so I'd imagine it depends on the severity and where/how it's fractured. If he has his jaw wired shut he probably isn't going to be playing because that can impede his breathing and make it difficult to maintain the kind of nutrition that a pro athlete needs. Otherwise, I'd guess he will miss minimal if any time and could play with a face shield.

I wouldn't doubt Crosby has a broken jaw, but a concussion seems unlikely


TIFWIW

The parody account of Dustin Jeffrey who talks about masturbation? That's not worth anything... lol

LOL.

Is that the case...I really didn't look closely.
Certainly don't follow him on Twitter, if he's on there.

No promises, but there could be some sort of update from #Penguins on Sidney Crosby today.

After I heard it I watched the slow-mo replay on, not sure if I can say the name on here, but you can see the puck deflect off the visor and hit more the jaw area on the right side of his face then his teeth. Going to the hospital for surgery and possible over night substantiated it.

I'm with you on that. As rumours go, this one at least is plausible, but until I hear something official, I’m taking it, along with everything else I read, with a grain of salt.

So I see people with "sources" saying he has a broken jaw, and other people with "sources" saying it's just teeth and he'll be fine within a week. This is getting eerily similar to the concussion fiasco. Ugh.

The tumor from his neck moved to his jaw.

That worked out well with the concussion issue. Remember the official "mild concussion" and will miss a "couple weeks"?

If its a broken jaw, the Pens will say a broke bone in the upper body, out 4-6 weeks. If it's some broken teeth, the Pens will say broken bone in the upper body, out day to day

Well, I'd rather go by that then: "John Smith says Sid is getting a Frankenstein like surgery and will miss the next 100 years"

I heard from a very reliable inside source actually yesterday around 4pm that he has a broken jaw to support Chris Mack's post.


If a moderator wants to PM me I will explain my source to them.


Thanks for the info. You may be the new Bioshock. :pop:



Hmmmmmmm.... Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing......


Mostly good. Bioshocks info on Sid was spot on, and he seems like an OK guy to me.

Technically, the Pens were right. It was a mild concussion. They just didn't know about the neck issue.

Given that we still have not heard anything I am fearing the worst. Broken jaw. I know it's never good to speculate but it's hard not to. I wish they would just give is some kind of information.

In this age of instant news, twitter and such, 24 hours is a long time. :wink: Besides, inquiring minds want\have to know.

Perhaps they want to see how the swelling is and how the rest of his body also recovers before they say anything about when he may be back

Rothlisburger busted his whole face on a car and had the whole thing reconstructed and he shook it off and played that same season and football players are ******* compared to hockey players. (though Ben is a tough son of a ***** and probably could have been a hockey player... but still.) I say Sid misses 2 weeks tops if any time at all.

This is just how the Pens and most of thr NHL handle injuries. There was no word on Martin until yesterday morning. I expect them to address it either tonight or tomorrow. No need to worry about them not updating the media on Easter morning.
