David Beckham stepped on the HDC turf promptly at 3 p.m. today for the first time as a Galaxy player with about 1,500 fans in the stands looking on, a press box full of English accents and a rock music soundtrack over the loudspeakers.
He didn’t train with the majority of the squad, however, instead working out with the similarly injured Chris Albright and trainer Ivan Pierra on the side of the field in front of the press box.
Beckham’s exercises appeared designed to strengthen his suspect left ankle, although his lateral movement looked strong.
Updated 3:50 p.m.: Beckham went through a light workout for 45 minutes, mainly stretching and jogging with our Galaxy players nursing knocks, including Quavas Kirk, Edson Buddle and Kyle Veris.
Next update: Beckham’s dinner plans (I’m kidding).
