Horton still not close to returning

Its another day and another non-update on concussed right wing Nathan Horton.

Horton will miss his third game with what the team termed a mild concussion when the Bruins take the ice against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night. Horton still doesnt appear close to resuming physical activity while waiting for his symptoms to subside, and Bruins coach Claude Julien basically said there is no update at this point.

Hes still where he was a few days ago. Hes feeling better, but not the stages of where hes working out, said Julien. The day he does feel better, Im going to be the first to let you know that hes on the bike now and that hes moving forward.

Horton was knocked out of the Jan. 22 win over the Philadelphia Flyers after serving as the victim of a blindside head shot from Flyers forward Tom Sestito, and hasnt been able to get back on the ice since then. The Sestito hit on Horton wasnt really captured on clear video replays partially because it occurred behind the play, and there were no penalties or supplemental discipline stemming from the incident.
