Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate Thursday that forward Nathan Horton 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 in the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals last season. He missed the rest of the postseason with the concussion.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork and several of his teammates said Thursday they weren’t going to get into a war of words with Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty, who said Wednesday that New York fans should “get ready for a parade.”
“The game is never won in the papers or in the media,” Wilfork said. “We’ll do all our talking on Sunday.”
Canty made the statement to a New York television station. When asked if he was worried about giving the Patriots bulletin board material, he said he didn’t care.
“Obviously, Tom Brady made a statement at their pep rally. Obviously, both teams are here to try to win a football game,” he said. “It just is what it is. I’m not trying to inflame anybody or anything like that. I want our fans to be excited about the game that’s coming up on Sunday. It’s going to be a great football game. It’s...
INDIANAPOLIS -- On Wednesday, Chris Canty told New York Giants fans to "get ready for a parade" following Super Bowl XLVI. Canty again spoke to the media on Thursday and was asked if he thought the comments might serve as potential motivation for the Patriots.
"I don't feel that was bulletin board material," Canty said. "There was a comment made by some guy in Foxboro earlier in the week. Tom Brady made some statements, it just is what it is. They are confident in their chances, as they should be. They are a very good football team. But we are a confident group as well. We've worked really hard to put ourselves in this position and we are looking forward to Sunday. ... I'm not trying to inflame anybody or anything like that, I just want our fans to be excited about the game that's coming up on Sunday. It's going to be a great football game. It's going to be a 60-minute game, and hopefully we can put ourselves in the...
After missing Wednesday's practice with a lower-body injury, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was on the ice for Thursday's morning skate and hopes to play Thursday night against the Hurricanes at TD Garden.
"I felt good this morning," McQuaid said after the skate. "I'm not sure exactly if there's been a decision made, but I felt good this morning."
Said coach Claude Julien: "As far as we know, he should be ready to go, but we'll probably leave it at game-time decision. He looked good this morning, and we anticipate he's going to play."
McQuaid caught his skate in a rut late in the third period against the Senators on Tuesday, and said that though a part of him was concerned he may have suffered something more severe, he's feeling better now.
"There's always a little bit of that concern," McQuaid said. "You're not sure how your body will react to different things, but I'm pretty...
INDIANAPOLIS -- For the first time since injuring his left ankle in the AFC championship game, Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski will practice Thursday and will play in Super Bowl XLVI Sunday here at Lucas Oil Stadium, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Gronkowski suffered what his father called a "high ankle sprain" when Bernard Pollard landed on it in the third quarter of the 23-20 win over the Ravens.
Gronkowski said Thursday morning he continues to feel "better and better" every day, adding he hoped to get on the practice field and wake up in one of the next three days feeling 100 percent. He did not practice last week and missed full pads practice on Monday. He also did not get on the field on Wednesday, when the team released its first injury report of the week.
