I agree. I don't really think the question is can he play at a rather decent level. He obviously can when healthy, but between the wrist that zapped power and quad which has clearly been bothering him for over a month, he has been beat up. Again.
You can make a case that perhaps he is incapable of staying healthy or the chances are very small. There are bigger issues to address before Gordon Beckham.
