By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is currently on the seven-day disabled list with lingering symptoms from a concussion, but he got good news Monday. Konerko was examined in Chicago and cleared to begin some "light physical activity." (

There is no timetable set for his return.

"I would imagine once he starts doing baseball stuff, [the doctors] will check him to make sure [the concussion symptoms] go away," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said ( "Right now, it's slow stuff. Most of it is just rest."

Here's the play that caused Konerko's concussion:

Konerko, 36, is hitting .316/.388/.504 with 18 homers and 54 RBI in 101 games this season. The six-time All-Star is also a well-known clubhouse leader.
