Beckham unlikely to play Saturday

Galaxy President Alexi Lalas said Thursday that he does not expect David Beckham to play against Toronto FC at the Home Depot Center on Saturday.

"The good news is that he is training and doing everything that all the other players are doing," Lalas told Reuters.

"We are still assessing -- not just his training but his recovery from training -- because it's been a while since he's done this," Lalas added. "I doubt he will play a role this weekend but we will certainly look to have him play a part in the game on Thursday" against the New York Red Bulls.

Just last week Lalas said he was hopeful that Beckham "will play a part in our next two home games." But Lalas also warned that if Beckham was not fully ready he would not be activated.

Beckham apparently is still not 100%, despite participating with no restrictions with the Galaxy in practice this week.

The Galaxy still has an outside chance to make the Major League Soccer playoffs.

After playing home matches against Toronto and New York, the Galaxy will finish the season at Chicago against the Fire on Oct. 21.
