The team made the announcements on Sunday.
Konerko sustained a mild concussion on Aug. 7. He will undergo a thorough concussion-related exam at Rush University Medical Center on Monday. He can be activated from the 7-day disabled list as early as Friday at Kansas City if all goes well.
The 36-year-old is hitting .316 with 18 homers and 54 RBIs on the season.
