Paul Konerko will undergo a thorough concussion-related examination Monday, the Chicago White Sox have announced. The first baseman was involved in a seemingly minor collision with Jarrod Dyson of the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday. Dyson's elbow struck Konerko in the head, and subsequently Konerko landed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
If the exam goes well, Konerko could resume baseball activities with the team on Tuesday. He will be eligible to return off the DL Friday while the team is in Kansas City.
"He felt a little better yesterday, but he hasn't done any activity. Exert himself," manager Robin Ventura said. "Running, workout, that's really the next step. Once he feels he's able to start doing things, running around and maybe swinging a bat. Most of the symptoms go away, and then you try to get some activity in and see where it goes."
