A thought on "could Archie fly?"

Are the 7 known specimens of archeopteryx well-enough preserved that
skeletal injuries could be cataloged?  Although the sample is quite 
small, it still may indicate a trend toward flight-related injuries
or ground-running-related injuries.  Or perhaps this is just something
that could be kept in mind as the sample size increases.
