Rodriguez injured his left shoulder last week after scoring a goal in Colombia's tournament-opening win over the United States.
Coach Jose Pekerman said Monday that the Real Madrid star's availability would be a game-time decision.
Rodriguez was put in the lineup and wore the captain's armband against Paraguay at the Rose Bowl.
Pekerman chose the same starting lineup that he used against the Americans. Los Cafeteros are the world's No. 3-ranked team.
