Is Jack Wilshere back in first-team training for Arsenal?

It would certainly seem he is involved in some sort of capacity.

The England international has posted this picture on his official Instagram account, teasing fans as to the status of his current ankle injury.

Wilshere picked up the injury in a challenge with Paddy McNair back in November. At the time reported that he had suffered ankle ligament damage and was facing a lenghty spell on the sidelines. They reported that he had undergone surgery on his left ankle and was set to be out of action for three months.

But earlier this week Arsene Wenger gave a positive update on the progress of Wilshere's injury issue. He said the player was ahead of schedule in his recovery:

"He’s doing very well. He’s a bit ahead of schedule. We always said that he should be alright by the end of February."

But he was not expected to be seen in Arsenal training again quite so early. Arsenal fans will hope he is back in action in the not so distant future.
