Running back Mike Goodson is out for the year after suffering a torn ACL and MCL per … Mike Goodson.
MRI Shows that I Tore My MCL and ACL yesterday
This is an unfortunate break for the Jets and Goodson. The injury was suffered as Goodson went to make a tackle on Geno Smith’s second interception of the game. In the process of attempting to make the tackle, one of his own teammates hit him low and at an awkward angle that apparently tore his ACL and MCL.
After signing to a three year, $6.9 million contract, Goodson missed the first four games due to a substance abuse suspension. Upon returning, Goodson showed impressive speed and a great ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. It’ll be interesting to see if the Jets bring back Alex Green for the rest of the season or look towards free agency to bring in someone (Joe McKnight?) with a similar skill set to Goodson.
Either way, this is bad news for the Jets.
