Sidney Crosby is feeling better, but there’s still no timetable for his return to the Pittsburgh lineup.

Crosby spoke to reporters today about his recovery from a broken jaw that required surgery.

“Having gone a week or so it’s gotten better and I feel better than after the first couple of days,” said Crosby, per the Penguins’ website. “I’m going to see the doctor this week. Whenever he feels comfortable and feels like I can go out there and skate, that’s something I’ll wait to hear from him.”

Crosby hasn’t been able to eat solid food since taking a puck in the face on March 30.

“It’s impossible to keep weight. I’ll be excited when I can eat,” he said. “It’s been shakes. It hasn’t been too enjoyable that way. Maybe this week I’ll start doing that.”
