The MLS injury report was update this afternoon, and the news may be concerning to LA Galaxy fans. David Beckham is now listed as questionable, suffering from the back spasms that plagued him last season. Beckham was not training with the team after their flight to Kansas City (according to Taylor Twellman, who will be calling the game on ESPN tomorrow). Back spasms make long travel unbearable, so it's no surprise Beckham didn't make the flight.

Landon Donovan is also listed as questionable with left quad tightness, but is likely to play tomorrow. The question now is who joins him in the midfield. Juninho and Michael Stephens could make a formidable pair in the center midfield, with Juninho going forward and Stephens playing defensively. Mike Magee start on the opposite wing, or Arena could choose to start Paolo Cardozo again.

So out of a pool of Michael Stephens, Mike Magee, Marcelo Sarvas, Juninho, and Paolo Cardozo; which three would you start on Saturday?
