'Slight concern' - Newcastle United new injury fear for star recently ruled out of five games
The Magpies No.9 was holding his arm in the closing stages of the 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest. Once the full-time whistle blew, the 31-year-old was immediately treated by physios.
But Howe admits there is a "slight concern" surrounding the England striker ahead of the visit of his former club next weekend.
Asked about Wilson, Howe said: "Slight concern for us after the game. His shoulder is fine but there looks to be a problem with one of the muscles in his arm. We’re hopeful it’s not serious but at this moment we don’t know."
Wilson lead the line as the Magpies recorded a fourth straight away victory to move up to seventh in the Premier League table. Bruno Guimaraes struck twice while Fabian Schar was also on the scoresheet to cancel out Anthony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi's goals.
“It was a tough game, we knew it was going to be," said Howe. "We were really pleased with elements of the first-half. To come in at 2-2 was difficult for us because I thought we were really good but we switched off a couple of times and got punished.
"Second-half was a real test because the crowd were up that we had to show a different side of our game but I thought we did. The second-half was built on spirit."
