FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets running back Mike Goodson was a no-show Tuesday for the first day of mandatory minicamp, and his absence subjects him to possible fines by the team.
Goodson is recovering from a serious knee injury that cut his season short last year and required surgery. He's also dealing with legal issues. He faces weapons charges after being indicted in November. He was found in a car along with an acquaintance with a handgun and a hollow-point bullet in May 2013.
Coach Rex Ryan says he has not spoken to Goodson, signed as a free agent last offseason, and isn't aware of the reason for his absence. Ryan adds that the "situation will be dealt with," likely alluding to fines.
