Free-agent RB Mike Goodson (Jets) did not appear in court Thursday, June 26, on charges related to drug and weapon possession. Goodson could be arrested if he does not appear for a court date on July 24. Goodson's acting attorney said his client could not secure a flight from Texas.
Huddle Up: Things continue to spiral in the wrong direction for the RB, who was recently released by the Jets after failing to show up for OTAs.

The New York Jets have released RB Mike Goodson with a left team designation.
Huddle Up: Goodson had an opportunity to become the Jets' feature back last season, but his off-the-field shenanigans cost him that shot, and when he opted to stay away from minicamp this season the team had had enough.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson did not report to mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 17, according to a league source. Goodson is subject to a fine, per the collective bargaining agreement. His fines could reach $70,000 if he's a no-show for the entire three-day minicamp. Goodson continues to rehab from a surgically repaired knee, and he didn't participate in any voluntary workouts.
Huddle Up: There's still time for the situation to change, but don't be surprised if the RB's time with the Jets is done, limited to 2 games and 7 rushes.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson has not attended organized team activities and head coach Rex Ryan does not know where he is. He is a longshot to make the team.
Huddle Up: Goodson has some off-the-field issues to deal with; meanwhile, the Jets have Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory. That combination adds up to Goodson quite likely not making the roster.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson's next hearing has been delayed until June 12. Goodson and a friend were arrested last May when his SUV was stopped, and Goodson and his friend were both found intoxicated. The police also found a hand gun loaded with a hollow-point bullet in the glove compartment.
Huddle Up: Even if Goodson clears his legal hurdles, avoids league discipline and makes the Jets' final roster, touches figure to be hard to come by with Chris Johnson, Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory all established ahead of him on the team's RB depth chart.

The New York Jets have restructured the contract of RB Mike Goodson, which has lowered his salary cap figure from $1.9 million to $1.28 million.
Huddle Up: Goodson will get a second season in the Big Apple after being limited to 2 games and 80 yards from scrimmage due to a league disciplinary suspension and a knee injury in 2013.

The New York Jets could consider releasing RB Mike Goodson because of his off-field issues and a $650,000 roster bonus he is scheduled to receive.
Huddle Up: Chris Ivory looked capable of being the Jets' primary back last season, with Bilal Powell as his backup. Ivory has injury issues, but neither back carries Goodson's off-the-field baggage. The $650K bonus might be enough to convince the Jets he's not worth the trouble.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson may be subject to NFL discipline again after being indicted on a gun charge last week. Goodson could be subject to discipline under the league's personal conduct policy.
Huddle Up: Goodson could go from a 4-game substance-abuse suspension to 2 games of reserve action to injured reserve to another season-opening suspension next year. In the meantime, fantasy GMs will be busy lining up options they can actually count on.

The New York Jets placed WR Clyde Gates (shoulder) and RB Mike Goodson (knee) on the season-ending Injured Reserve Tuesday, Oct. 15. Gates had 12 catches for 122 yards on the season, while Goodson had 9 touches for 80 yards. The team also signed RB Miguel Maysonet from the practice squad to their active roster.
Huddle Up: This spells more work for WRs Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley and Santonio Holmes -- when he returns -- and RB Chris Ivory.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets RB Mike Goodson (knee) suffered a knee injury in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he is scheduled for an MRI Monday, Oct. 14. A person close to Goodson said Sunday, Oct. 13, that the injury 'doesn't look good.'
Huddle Up: That is unfortunate for Goodson, who had just made it back from suspension. This does clear things up in that backfield, however. Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory are going to handle the load as long as they're healthy.

New York Jets RBs Mike Goodson (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (hamstring) are each active for the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: With Goodson coming off a four-game suspension and Ivory back after missing Week 4, this will be the first time all 3 of the Jets' top backs will be active for a game -- not necessarily the best of news for Bilal Powell owners.

The New York Jets have activated RB Mike Goodson from the exempt list and promoted WR Mike Campbell from the practice squad. They have also released LB Ricky Sapp and WR Ryan Spadola.
Huddle Up: Goodson doesn't have any fantasy value this week. However, if Chris Ivory continues to struggle with injuries and inconsistency, Goodson has a chance to push Bilal Powell for playing time in the coming weeks.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson is eligible to rejoin the team for practice Monday, Sept. 30, after serving his four-game suspension for substance abuse.
Huddle Up: Goodson's return coupled with Chris Ivory's could spell an end to Bilal Powell's reign as the feature back in New York. We don't know just how Goodson is going to fit in, but now is as good a time as ever to sell on Powell.
