Ramsey contributed both a goal and an assist in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Hull City on Sunday.

Ramsey just recently returned from a thigh injury that cost him several months and Sunday marked the first time he was named to Arsenal's starting squad in a Premiership game since late December. A candidate for Player of the Year before the setback, Ramsey transitioned seamlessly back into the Gunners' attack. While he opened the scoring with a 31st minute goal and added an assist just ahead of halftime, Ramsey also led Arsenal with four shot attempts (three on goal). With a favorable schedule in his three remaining games, Ramsey could be a useful late season addition to fantasy teams.

Ramsey came on for Mathieu Flamini in the 66th minute of Arsenal's 0-3 loss to Everton on Sunday. It was Ramsey's first appearance since suffering the injury back on Boxing Day.

Ramsey did not take any shots during the match, as he slowly makes his way back to match fitness. Arsenal are in big trouble of losing their top-four place in the table, and Ramsey will have to really step up in the near-term to help the Gunners solidify another Champions League spot.

Ramsey (thigh) is back in training and manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful he will be fit for Sunday's match against Everton, the club's official web site reports.

Ramsey suffered his thigh injury on Boxing Day and has already suffered two setbacks in his recovery. While it's certainly good that he is returning to the pitch, Wenger has every reason to ease him back slowly, which should limit his fantasy potential in the short-term.

Ramsey (thigh) is expected to return to training next week, the Daily Mail reports. "Ramsey is progressing well," manager Arsene Wenger said. "We must be patient for a few more weeks."

Ramsey has experienced multiple setbacks in his recovery from a thigh injury that he suffered back on Boxing Day, so any update on his return has to be taken with a grain of salt. There is speculation that he could return for the FA Cup semifinal against Wigan on April 12.

Ramsey suffered another setback in his recovery from a thigh injury that has kept him out of action since Boxing Day and will be out an additional two weeks, reports the Daily Mail.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Ramsey's setback and said that he would expect the player to miss another two weeks. This is yet another delay to Ramsey's expected return, and Arsenal could use the midfielder as they fight for a top-four position in the league.

Ramsey (thigh) has officially signed a contract extension with Arsenal, the club's official site reports.

Ramsey has had a very effective, yet injury-plagued season, scoring 13 goals in 27 appearances. However, he has not played since Boxing Day, and has suffered two setbacks so far in his recovery. He is expected to be back in two weeks, but it's tough to trust that timetable after his repeated delays.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Ramsey (thigh) could be out for two more weeks due to his thigh strain, saying "our worry at the moment is that Ramsey takes longer than expected. He had a first setback before and now it's slower. It was the plan for him to join in on Thursday but he still has recurrent pains in his thigh and of course he's now a little bit apprehensive because of the setback he had. We have to be very cautious with him. When will he be back? I believe it's two more weeks now."

While Ramsey could return to training in two weeks, it's unclear when he'll be able to get back to playing in matches, which is really where Arsenal need him now.

Ramsey (thigh) has been ruled out for Arsenal's Premier League match against Tottenham on Sunday. Manager Arsene Wenger said "we have had to defer his comeback to full training a little so he is not available. He is having difficulties in the final stages of his rehab. It looks to be short-term."

The Gunners are desperate to get Ramsey back, with Theo Walcott ruled out for the year with a knee injury, Mesut Ozil out for six weeks with a hamstring injury, and Jack Wilshere also out with an ankle injury. If Ramsey's setback is truly short-term, he may be able to return to face Chelsea on March 22.
