Carroll had two goals and an assist during West Ham's 3-1 win over Swansea City on Sunday.

In his fifth appearance since returning from a long-term foot injury, Carroll looked absolutely dominant, scoring both goals off headers by taking advantage of his height advantage. He'll have to continue to battle for playing time with Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho, but after Sunday's performance, there's no reason for Carroll to hit the bench any time soon.

Carroll (ankle) came on as a late second-half sub in West Ham's scoreless draw with Aston Villa on Saturday, finishing with two shots, which both landed on goal.

Carroll's appearance was his first this season due to his long layoff with an ankle injury. He'll likely be used sparingly to begin, and it may be tough for him to break into the starting XI with Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia playing well this season.

Carroll tore ligaments in his left ankle while on West Ham's preseason tour in New Zealand, and he is expected to be sidelined for up to four months, the Daily Mail reports.

The initial belief was that it was only a minor injury and that he could return with intensive treatment, but club doctors discovered the ligament issue, which will require surgery. Carroll has been the definition of an injury-plagued player, and he will provide very little, if any, fantasy value until possibly December.
