Rodriguez will miss Tuesday's match versus Arsenal, but he is nearing a return to training as he recovers from a foot injury.

The oft-injured 26-year-old has not played since mid-October after undergoing surgery, but he is finally nearing the end of his latest recovery. While Rodriguez was once one of the bright young stars of the English game, he has taken a backseat to the likes of Shane Long, Graziano Pelle and the newly-acquired Charlie Austin, making him unlikely to contribute much for fantasy owners for the foreseeable future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez could return to training as early as late December as he continues to recover from foot surgery, the Southern Daily Echo reports.

The 26-year-old has not played since experiencing nerve damage in his foot in mid-October, but he continues to inch closer to a return. Once he is fully fit, Rodriguez will have to fight for regular playing time, as he had only made two league starts prior to suffering the injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez is expected to be sidelined for seven-to-eight weeks after undergoing foot surgery Tuesday, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed Thursday.

Rodriguez has found regular playing time hard to come by this season, as Graziano Pelle has a firm hold on the starting striker job. Unfortunately for Rodriguez, Pelle is suspended for this weekend's match against Manchester City, so he may have even gotten a fill-in start. Instead, the Saints will go with Shane Long until Pelle returns.

Rodriguez's foot injury will keep him out of Saturday's match versus Stoke City.

The 26-year-old has not played since Oct. 17th because of the injury, and there is a growing concern that he could require surgery in the near future. It is still too early to speculate when Rodriguez might be back, but he could be looking at an extended absence if he does go under the knife.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez (foot) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's match against Sunderland.

In eight Premier League appearances (two starts), Rodriguez has yet to tally a goal or an assist. The 26-year-old winger was an accomplished scorer at Burnley and scored 15 Premier League goals for the Saints in 2013-14, but missed all of last season with a horrific knee injury. He could return after the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez (foot) is out Sunday against Liverpool.

Rodriguez has found regular playing time hard to come by this season thanks to the continued good play of Graziano Pelle, so his absence Sunday isn't likely to affect too many fantasy teams.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez could miss Sunday's game against Liverpool because of foot injury, manager Ronald Koeman said Friday.

Rodriguez has found regular playing time hard to come by, as Koeman appears to prefer a single striker, which has been Graziano Pelle since last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodriguez is starting Sunday against Arsenal after missing all of last season because of a torn ACL.

Rodriguez will start up front with Graziano Pelle nearly 17 months after suffering the injury. He was a very solid goal scorer before the injury, though a match at the Emirates is a tough one for an immediate breakout.
