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.
