Wilshere was substituted after 62 minutes at the Hawthorns but appeared to come through unscathed, raising hopes of a return to the first team.
The 20-year-old midfielder was sidelined last season with ankle, foot and heel injuries, forcing him to miss the European Championship. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has vowed to ease him back to competitive action.
Wilshere is widely seen as England's best young talent and has made five appearances for the national team.
