Jets release RB Mike Goodson


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) The Jets have released veteran running back Mike Goodson after he failed to show up to minicamp on Tuesday. General manager John Idzik told the Newark Star-Ledger that he was released with the designation "left squad." 

"Obviously, it's disappointing," Idzik said. "Like we do with all of our players, we gave Mike, we feel in good conscience, every opportunity here with the Jets. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. So we made the move, ultimately, that we felt was best for the team."

Goodson is facing weapons charges stemming from an arrest last year. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season and later tore his ACL. 


Report: 'Matter of when -- not if' Mike Goodson gets released


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Mike Goodson was not in attendance at Jets minicamp on Tuesday, fueling speculation that he won't be a part of the roster this season. The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta seems to think so, posting on Twitter that "[i]t's a matter of when -- not if -- the Jets part ways with Mike Goodson."

Goodson tore his ACL last season and had an off-field incident last spring that is still caught up in the courts. He would enter camp behind Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell if he did show up. 


How will the Jets split carries this season?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) The Jets have to figure out who will get the majority of carries this season out of Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Daryl Richardson, Alex Green and Mike Goodson, reports ESPN.

The report says two of them likely won't make the team, but figuring out the carries could be tough. Johnson averaged 18 rushes per game in his six seasons with the Titans. Ivory averaged 12 per game last season as the Jets' leading rusher. Powell averaged 11 last season. That's a total of 41 rushes for their top three backs.

"Everybody’s goal is to put wins on the board," said Johnson. "We’re not really worried about the carries, who's going to play this down and that down. We’ve all just got one focus and that’s winning."


Mike Goodson's court hearing postponed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Jets running back Mike Goodson was due in court Monday in the weapons possession case against him, but the hearing was postponed, reports The Star-Ledger. Goodson is now scheduled to appear in court June 12.

Jets assuming Mike Goodson will be on roster


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Jets general manager John Idzik expects running back Mike Goodson, who's facing weapons charges, to be on the 2014 roster. “We assume Mike is a Jet," Idzik told NorthJersey.com. "We’ve always made that assumption. We assume that Mike is on our roster.”

Even if Goodson avoids jail time and an NFL suspension, he'd be behind Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell in the Jets' backfield. Goodson's next court date is May 19.


Mike Goodson still out for a while


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday he hopes to have running back Mike Goodson this season, but his roster spot is in jeopardy with Chris Johnson now in New York, reports ESPN.

Goodson is coming off a torn ACL last year, and he's dealing with pending legal charges (and a possible suspension) stemming from his arrest last May. He is not expected to participate in offseason workouts.

"If Goodson comes back, we'll see what he can provide," said Ryan, adding: "I don't anticipate anything in the near future that he'll be able to do, but we'll see how he progresses."


Jets backfield takes shape following Johnson signing


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2014) With the Jets signing Chris Johnson on Wednesday, the rest of their backfield should start to take shape, reports the New York Daily News.

The report says Johnson and Chris Ivory will work as a tandem, and Bilal Powell will be the No. 3 running back. Mike Goodson is expected to be released before the start of the season.


Chris Johnson's signing could lead to Mike Goodson's release


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) If the Jets sign running back Chris Johnson, they'd have five veteran running backs and the most expendable would be Mike Goodson, reports ESPN.com. Goodson is recovering from ACL surgery and dealing with legal issues, the report noted.

Cutting Goodson would save the Jets $720,000.


No plea offer on table for Mike Goodson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) There is no plea offer on the table in the weapons possession case against Jets running back Mike Goodson, reports The Star-Ledger. After rejecting an offer that would have forced him to spend at least a year in jail, Goodson was indicted in November on two weapons possession charges, the report said.

The prosecutor has not made another offer. Goodson intends to prove his innocence, according to his attorney. The next pretrial court date is May 19.


Jets 'pretty set' at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) The Jets have a ton of needs to address in free agency and the draft, but running back isn't one of them, reports the New York Post. Chris Ivory can be a "strong feature back" if he stays healthy, Bilal Powell is a "nice backup," and Mike Goodson can provide the "speed component" assuming he recovers well from his knee injury, the report said.

The paper says general manager John Idzik doesn't need to chase running backs in free agency but possibly should draft one in the later rounds "to see if you can develop a back behind the top three."


Mike Goodson to be arraigned on weapons charge Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Jets running back Mike Goodson will be arraigned on weapons charges Wednesday.

Goodson was cited with a charge of possession of a firearm and illegal ammunition. The initial incident took place in May, and was the reason for Goodson's four-game suspension to start the year. Goodson is expected to plead not guilty. 


Mike Goodson indicted on weapons charges


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson has been indicted on weapons charges. That news came down from the Morris County prosecutor's office, per Fox Sports 1.

The latest problem compounds a forgettable year for Goodson, who was placed on injured reserve in mid-October with a knee injury.


Jets make flurry of roster moves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) The Jets announced a flurry of moves Tuesday. They first placed wide receiver Clyde Gates (shoulder) and running back Mike Goodson (knee) on injured reserve.

To take their spots on the roster, the Jets signed wide receiver Greg Salas off the Eagles' practice squad and wide receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs.

The Jets also made an addition to the practice squad by adding running back Miguel Maysonet.


Mike Goodson announces he has torn ACL, MCL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson took to Twitter Monday to announce he suffered a torn MCL and ACL Sunday against the Steelers. Goodson wrote: "MRI Shows that I Tore My MCL and ACL yesterday..... Not to happy right now But Everything Happens for a reason!"

The injury will end Goodson's 2013 season.


Report: Fear is Mike Goodson suffered torn ACL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) The fear is Jets running back Mike Goodson sustained a torn ACL Sunday against the Steelers, accoring to the New York Daily News. Goodson is set to undergo an MRI Monday.

Mike Goodson injures knee late


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson needed to be helped off the field after injuring his left knee late in the fourth quarter Week 6 against the Steelers. He had four carries for 29 yards and one catch for 10 before leaving.

Considered the Jets' speediest back, Goodson was getting a chance to contribute not only because the Jets were looking to throw the ball down 19-6, but also because starting running back Bilal Powell left with a shoulder injury in the third quarter.

Powell downplayed his injury after the game, so even if Goodson is able to return Week 7 against the Patriots, he may just serve as a change-of-pace option again. The Jets also have Chris Ivory, who ran four times for 16 yards in Week 6.


Mike Goodson active vs. Steelers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson, who missed practice Wednesday with an illness before practicing in full Thursday and Friday, is active for Week 6 against the Steelers. It's only the second time he's been active all season. He had three carries for 32 yards at Atlanta last week.

Jets backs expected to play in Week 6


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2013) Jets running backs Chris Ivory (hamstring) and Mike Goodson (illness) are both probable for Week 6 against the Steelers, based on Friday's injury report. Both players were able to practice Friday, and are expected to play Sunday. 

Mike Goodson's role still lacking


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/8/2013) Active for the first time Week 5 at Atlanta, Jets running back Mike Goodson broke off a 26-yard run on a direct snap early in the second quarter, but it was one of only four touches he had all day, totaling 41 yards on three carries and one catch.

A nice contribution, but nothing that should move the needle in Fantasy.

Bilal Powell, meanwhile, had 12 carries and one catch, giving him double-digit carries in all five games this season. He's the bell cow of the Jets' rushing attack. Goodson may join Chris Ivory as a change-of-pace option, but he's unlikely to take advantage of the team's Week 6 matchup against the Steelers, who rank 25th against the run and have allowed the most Fantasy points per game to running backs this season.


Mike Goodson makes immediate impact


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson returned from his four-game suspension and paid immediate dividends in the win over Atlanta. Running out of the Wildcat, Goodson ripped off a 26-yard run and finished with 32 yards on three carries.

Goodson also caught one of his two targets for 9 yards. Goodson, who seems to be the preferred third-down back, plays the Steelers in Week 6.


Mike Goodson set for season debut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson is active against the Falcons after being listed as probable with a hamstring injury. Goodson was suspended for the first four games. He'll look for touches behind Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory.

Jets RBs Mike Goodson, Chris Ivory both probable


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2013) The Jets ruled running backs Mike Goodson and Chris Ivory, who are both on the injury report with hamstring issues, as probable for the Monday night game Week 5 at Atlanta, the New York Daily News reports. 

Goodson was just added to the 53-man roster Saturday, a good indication he's ready to play for the team after being suspended. Ivory has been seeing an increased workload in practice this week. He has just 72 yards on 26 carries for a 2.8 average. He is solidly behind emerging back Bilal Powell on the depth chart.


Mike Goodson added to active roster


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson has been added to the active roster for the Week 5 Monday night game against Atlanta, the team's official site reports.

Goodson had to leave practice early Friday due to hamstring tightness, but expects to play in the Monday night game as he's coming off a suspension.


Mike Goodson leaves Jets practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson left practice early Friday with hamstring tightness according to the New York Daily News. Goodson had just finished serving a four-game suspension and had hopes to play in Monday's game at Atlanta. 

Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg doesn't believe the injury to be serious. Goodson was not listed on Friday's practice report. 

"I don't think it's much of anything there, but we'll see," Mornhinweg said. 


Mike Goodson worth monitoring


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Jets running back Mike Goodson has served his four-game suspension and likely will play some Monday night in Atlanta. With Chris Ivory (hamstring) possibly sidelined again, the Jets don't have much behind starter Bilal Powell.

Goodson is better than Alex Green. And he's produced when given a chance. He's averaged 4.5 yards per carry in his career and once caught 40 passes in a season. If the Jets fall behind, Goodson could see a lot of snaps due to his receiving skills.

Goodson pronounced himself "healthy, strong, fast and ready to play." He probably won't make a huge Fantasy impact after missing all of training camp and the first four games, but he's definitely worth monitoring Week 5.
