Walcott sufferd a torn ACL in Saturday's FA Cup win over Tottenham, and will miss the remainder of the Premier League season and the World Cup, ESPN reports.

This is devastating news for Arsenal, the England World Cup squad, and fantasy owners. Walcott seemed in good spirits after he suffered the injury and was carried off the field, so a torn ACL prognosis is obviously very surprising.

Walcott's knee injury might keep him out a month, according to The Guardian.

Just what the Gunners don't need, an in-form scoring threat on the sidelines. On the bright side, it looks like Mesut Ozil is just about ready to start again, and Arsenal has just three fixtures remaining in January.

Walcott was carted off late in Saturday's FA Cup match against Tottenham, suffering an apparent left-knee injury.

Walcott was in good spirits while carted off the pitch, which lends optimism that he'll be ready to go Jan. 13 when Arsenal heads to Aston Villa. We'll see what we learn over the next week or so. Walcott had an active game before his departure, firing eight shots (but just two on goal) through 80 minutes.

Walcott's score in extra time secured Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Cardiff City.

Make it five goals in five games for Walcott, who's in sparkling form right now. His minor shoulder injury didn't seem to hold him back here, especially during a dominant second half for the Gunners.

Walcott (shoulder) is in the starting XI for Wednesday's match against Cardiff.

Walcott faced a late fitness test due to a shoulder injury, but he passed and could be a great play Wednesday against Cardiff. He will likely be heavily involved, as Mesut Ozil (shoulder), Aaron Ramsey (thigh) and Olivier Giroud (ankle) all sit with injuries.

Walcott is headed for a late fitness test ahead of Wednesday's match against Cardiff due to a shoulder injury, the Daily Mail reports.

Walcott has been in excellent form recently, and with Olivier Giroud (ankle), Mesut Ozil (shoulder) and Aaron Ramsey (thigh) all out Wednesday, Walcott will surely be needed to keep the Arsenal attack going.

Walcott picked up an assist in Sunday's 1-0 victory at Newcastle.

Walcott's useful free kick turned into an Olivier Giroud goal, and that duo had a terrific chance about 10 minutes later. It was far from a dominant game from Walcott, but once again he was a difference-maker for the Gunners.

Walcott's two second-half goals rallied Arsenal to a 3-1 victory at West Ham on Thursday.

Walcott's first tally was a nutmeg special, a stone fluke, but he made no mistake on a delightful header three minutes later. He's been Arsenal's best player for a couple of weeks, converting four goals since he returned to the lineup three games back.
