Cronjé sustained a right ankle injury during the Boks' 37-15 victory over Argentina in Port Elizabeth in the opening round of the Rugby Championship.
Loose forward Teboho Mohoje, however, was not considered for selection because of the rib injury he sustained while playing in the Currie Cup for the Free State Cheetahs against the Blue Bulls, while Francois Venter returns to the squad after not being involved in the opener.
Flyhalf Handré Pollard will remain in South Africa to continue with the final phase of his rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, the Springboks are set to continue with their match preparations in Port Elizabeth, before flying out to Johannesburg on Tuesday and then onto Argentina early on Wednesday morning.
