Beckham “Questionable” for Friday’s Chicago game.

Nationally televised on ESPN2: check.

Playoff implications on the line since the Galaxy can clinch their first playoff berth in four years with a win over the Chicago Fire on Friday night and a D.C. United loss to Chivas USA Saturday: check.

David Beckham returning from what was initially dismissed as a 50-50, long-standing Achilles tendon issue: Maybe not.

The midfielder could miss his second game in a row at a crucial time of the season after being one of five players listed as questionable in today’s Galaxy injury report ahead of Friday’s game.

The complete list:

OUT – Alecko Eskandarian (Head – Disabled List), Julian Valentin (Right Foot – Disabled List)


QUESTIONABLE – David Beckham (Right Ankle – Inflammation), A.J. DeLaGarza (Left Knee – Bruise), Dema Kovalenko (Right Achilles – Tendonitis), Eddie Lewis (Left Ankle – Sprain), Stefani Miglioranzi (Left Groin – Strain)


You’ve got to feel for Eskandarian: his injury is not broken nose or concussion symptoms – it’s just “head.”
