Rosicky (knee) has been given permission to return to training with the team, according to Mirror.

The veteran is moving to the next stage of his recovery according to plan. Hes been given permission to return to training next week. However he is not expected to be back in action until the end of this year. At that age, with that kind of injury, it would be miracle if he manages to get even close to his familiar self by the end of the season.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Rosicky (knee) will be sidelined until "around the new year."

Rosicky had surgery in early August and was expected to be out until December, so while the newest timeline has him back later than that, it's not a drastic difference. All that being said, Rosicky isn't likely to get enough playing time when he returns to make a meaningful fantasy impact.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Rosicky (knee) is likely to be sidelined until the end of December.

Wenger noted that Rosicky's knee surgery was similar to the one Danny Welbeck had, with the latter targeting a return by Christmas. Rosicky is a bit fantasy producer, so his absence isn't likely to hurt many fantasy teams, but he did provide good depth for Arsenal in their cup matches.

Rosicky will be sidelined for at least two months after undergoing knee surgery.

Rosicky's too far down the depth chart to make much of an impact for Arsenal, and his defensive mentality doesn't suit most fantasy formats anyway.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday that Rosicky (knee) is on a "progressive recovery," but he did not offer a timetable for his return.

Even when he is fully fit, Rosicky doesn't figure to make a significant fantasy impact given his low placement on the depth chart.

Rosicky's goal in the 89th minute closed the scoring in a 2-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.

Rosicky was selected in the 82nd minute for his experience and defensive chops, but he's not afraid to jump into the offensive flow if a chance shows. He's no longer spry enough to be an Arsenal regular, but his veteran's moxie makes him a valuable closer in spots like this.

Rosicky assisted on one of Alexis Sanchez's two goals during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday. He finished the match with one shot (on target), two key passes and two successful dribbles.

Rosicky got the start ahead of Mathieu Flamini, who was returning from a groin injury, and Aaron Ramsey, who is working his way back from a hamstring issue. Ramsey and Flamini both went unused Sunday, so it's possible that Rosicky could keep the starting job next Sunday against Manchester City, given that he's the most fit of the three.

Rosicky was rested Sunday after being taken off during Thursday's game against QPR with cramps in his calves and hamstrings, manager Arsene Wenger said Sunday.

Rosicky's absence didn't likely alter too many fantasy teams, and he should be fit for Thursday's match at Southampton.
