FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Predators captain Shea Weber has taken a big step in his recovery from a concussion by returning to the ice in non-contact drills.

Weber skated Tuesday with the Predators in a public practice in Franklin, but Nashville coach Barry Trotz says there is still no timetable for when the Norris Trophy finalist will return to game action.
