Walcott (knee) will not play in Arsenal's Premier League match against Hull City on Saturday, as he will play Friday during the club's U-21 match, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Walcott is getting very close to returning from a torn ACL suffered in January, but despite the plethora of injuries Arsenal are dealing with, Wenger will not rush Walcott back before he's fully fit.

Walcott (knee) has returned to full training and "is not too far away now," manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Arsenal have been hit hard by injuries recently, so getting Walcott back would be a huge boost to the side. If he's able to continue training through the international break, he could make his season debut Oct. 18 against Hull City.

Walcott (knee) will return to full training next week, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Tuesday.

Walcott tore his ACL back in January, so next week's return to full training marks the end of a nine-month absence. While he'll be eased into the action to build his match fitness, having Walcott available soon is a huge lift considering Arsenal's current crop of injured players.

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.
