Nathan Horton still not working out after concussion

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] said after the team’s morning skate Thursday that forward Nathan Horton [2] has not progressed this week in his recovery from his latest concussion, and still is not riding the stationary bike.

“He’s still where he was a few days ago,” Julien said. “Feeling better, but not well enough right now to get to that stage of working out.”

Horton suffered the injury on Jan. 22, when he was hit by Flyers forward Tom Sestito. The play was not reviewed by the league, and Sestito was not fined or suspended for the hit.

The concussion is Horton’s second since June. Horton was famously blindsided by Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome [3] in the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup [4] finals last season. He missed the rest of the postseason with the concussion.
