Found August 16, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko, who hasn't played since Aug. 7 because of post-concussion symptoms, is expected to return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Kansas City Royals, reported. Konerko was on the 7-day concussion disabled list after being inadvertently elbowed in the head by Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson. Konerko was allowed to resume baseball activities on Tuesday. Konerko will probably be the team's designated hitter, at least through the weekend series against the Royals. Konerko, 36, is batting .316 with 18 home runs this season for the White Sox, who entered Thursday's play leading the AL Central by two games.
