Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Wilshere is at least 2-to-3 weeks away from returning from his ankle injury.

Given Wilshere's history of ankle injuries and the relative health in the Arsenal midfield right now, there's very little reason to rush him back. In fact, his starting spot is far from assured when he does return to fitness, keeping him a fairly weak fantasy option.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that he is unsure when Wilshere will be able to return from his ankle injury. "I don't know how long it will be before he returns because we have to respect the progression of his training," Wenger said.

Outside of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), the Arsenal midfield is surprisingly fit right now, giving little reason to rush Wilshere back before he's fully fit. Given his history with ankle injuries, the team will continue to be cautious in his rehab.

Wilshere has yet to resume training after undergoing a procedure in his injured ankle, according to the Official Team Website.

Wilshere was originally set to return this weekend at the very earliest so it comes as no surprise that he is not yet ready for the training ground. He should be considered out indefinitely until we hear otherwise.

Wilshere will be out at least through next weekend after having a procedure on his injured ankle, manager Arsene Wenger said Friday.

Apparently Wilshere was always planning on having the procedure done, though likely after the season ended, but he was dealing an irritation that required it to be done now. No stranger to ankle issues, Wilshere will miss at least the next two games.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Wilshere (ankle) "is fine", and he could be available for Saturday's match against Crystal Palace.

Wilshere has been sidelined since undergoing ankle surgery in November, so even now that he has returned to fitness, it's highly unlikely that he starts his first game back.

Wilshere (ankle) trained fully this week, though manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that he is unlikely to play in Monday's FA Cup match against Middlesbrough.

Wilshere will have a shot to return to the starting XI, as Aaron Ramsey is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury. If Wilshere is held out Monday, his next opportunity to play will come next Saturday against Crystal Palace.
