Vaccaro determined an MRI and CAT scan revealed no evidence of a fracture in Crosby's neck, instead confirming that Crosby is dealing with a separate neck problem.
Reports surfaced on Saturday night that Crosby had sustained a fractured neck at some point.
The 24-year-old hasn't played since concussion-like symptoms came back after a game against the Boston Bruins on Dec. 5. Doctors believe the neck injury can cause symptoms similar to a concussion.
The team called the injury "treatable," adding Crosby will return when all symptoms have disappeared, but that he is nowhere close to being cleared for contact at the moment.
Crosby continues to skate with fellow injured teammates Jordan Staal and Simon Despres and hopes to work on his neck in Pittsburgh. He did not accompany his teammates to Toronto for Wednesday night's matchup against the Maple Leafs.
