Rutledge is not currently contracted to any Investec Super Rugby franchise or wider training group.
Hookers Dane Coles and Motu Matu'u both left the field in the Hurricanes 29-28 win over the Crusaders at Westpac Stadium.
Coles was replaced in the 42nd minute because of an ankle injury. He has since had an x-ray on his left ankle which was clear. Matu'u also received a knock to his shoulder and came off with two minutes to play in the match.
