Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Thursday that Walcott (knee) is expected to begin training at the end of August or the beginning of September.

Walcott is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in January and he will likely be eased back into the rotation when he is finally deemed fit. As such, a return at the end of September is possible, if he can begin training in the coming weeks.

Walcott (knee) is progressing very well and is expected to join full training at the end of August, Arsenal's official website reports.

Walcott is recovering from tearing his ACL in January and is approaching the final stages of his rehabilitation. If he is indeed able to return to full training in late August, Walcott would probably only miss the first month or so of the upcoming Premier League season.

Walcott, who is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in January, could miss the beginning of the 2014-15 Premier League season, ESPN FC reports.

When Walcott initially sustained the injury, there was a brief hope that he may be able to return for the World Cup. Those hopes were dashed rather quickly, and it's not overly surprising that he could miss the start of next season, as that would be less than nine months since he suffered the injury.

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.
