Rodriguez, who has been the subject of multiple transfer rumors involving at least Liverpool and Tottenham, is hoping to return from his torn ACL in late February, ESPN reports.

Rodriguez suffered the injury in early April last year and has yet to resume even light training with the squad. Given such a lengthy time away, it wouldn't be surprising if his return estimate was delayed again, which means he'll only have a handful of games to produce.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman expects Rodriguez to be out of action for another six weeks as he continues to recover from a long-term knee injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Rodriguez has been out for more than eight months after rupturing a cruciate ligament in April. Southampton was originally hoping the striker would return by the end of the 2014, but he is likely to be out of action until February.

Rodriguez suffered a slight setback in his recovery from a torn ACL, but he is still expected to return to training in December, the Daily Star reports.

Despite the knee injury, Rodriguez has been heavily linked with a number of clubs looking for attacking help in the January transfer window, namely Tottenham and Liverpool. However, with how well the Saints have played this season, they may choose to hang onto Rodriguez to help them qualify for European competition next season.

Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin will not be sold this summer, Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger has told Sky Sports.

Both players were linked with a move to Tottenham, where they would have been reunited with former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino. There's been a mass exodus at Southampton this summer, with Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers all leaving. Whether the club's board actually intends to keep Rodriguez and Schneiderlin or is simply holding out for higher offers is anyone's guess, but it's a situation we'll continue to monitor.

Rodriguez (knee) led Southampton with 15 goals despite suffering a season-ending torn ACL in April.

Rodriguez also contributed three assists and averaged a team-high 3.1 shot attempts across his 33 appearances. Further, his 15 goals ranked ninth in the Premiership this season. At 24 years old, Rodriguez embodies one of England's most promising young attackers, but his untimely injury tragically prevented him from World Cup consideration and will likely force him to miss the first month or so of the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Rodriguez suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's match at Manchester City, and he is expected to miss the next six months.

A terrible injury at a terrible time, as Rodriguez will not only miss the rest of the Premier League season, but also the World Cup. It's been a remarkable season for Rodriguez, whose 15 goals trail only Luis Suarez (29), Daniel Sturridge (20), and Yaya Toure (18) this year.

Rodriguez landed awkwardly after jumping for a ball during Saturday's match against Manchester City, injuring his knee, reports. He had to be stretchered off the pitch with his knee in a brace.

The immediate concern was that Rodriguez seriously injured his knee, and if there is any significant ligament damage, he could easily miss the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup.

Rodriguez bagged two goals during Saturday's match versus Newcastle.

Rodriguez passed a late fitness test on his knee to start Saturday and showed no signs of being hampered throughout the match. The striker extended his scoring streak to four straight games, bringing his season total to 15 goals. That haul currently puts Rodriguez in a three-way tie for fourth in goals scored among Premier League players on the campaign.
