Carroll scored his first two goals of the season in the 2-1 victory over West Brom on Tuesday and came on as a substitute in Thursday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
The 28-year-old, who scored 33 goals in 91 appearances for Newcastle, has been plagued by a catalogue of injuries since joining the Hammers from Liverpool in 2012.
Carroll has 18 months remaining on his present contract, although West Ham have the option to extend his deal by a further two years.
