Is this eggplant still OK?

I have some of the long purple eggplant that is starting to feel soft. Will it still be OK to cook?

It should be ok for that but I would do it as soon as you can.Ilove roasted eggplant.Dont be alarmed if it starts browning quickly after you cut just coat in olive oil with other vegies and roast away.
