Rex won’t say if Goodson will be back at all

The Jets didn’t have much to say when they announced running back Mike Goodson was going on the reserve/did not report list.

And now that they’re saying things, they’re not saying much.

Jets coach Rex Ryan didn’t do anything to quell speculation or concern when asked about Goodson’s return, even when asked if they knew if Goodson would return at all.

Goodson was arrested in May for weapons and drug charges.

“Again, you know what? I know where he is and all that stuff and I guess that’s all I’m going to leave it at,” Ryan said after his first practice, via Seth Walder of the New York Daily News.

When asked earlier about Goodson, he replied: “I said what I said about Mike, and I’m just going to leave it at that. I don’t really want to get into the specifics and what I know and all that kind of stuff.”

Goodson’s agent referred to the reason as “attending to personal matters,” but usually if the team knows it’s a short-term absence, they’ll get that word out.

Now, until they say, people will be left to wonder.

    He’s not coming back Rex. Count your blessings and move on.

    So glad the Panthers got rid of this bum.

    He was such a good player at A&M but never seemed to materialize into the great player he should have been in college.

    No way the JETS aren’t quietly happy he’s not there

    That’s actually a pretty big loss. He was much needed for the Jets running game, and catching the ball out of the backfield! I have no clue how this will turn out, but it doesn’t look or sound gd. Maybe McKnight can step up to take the role Goodson was suppose to have.

    The Raiders actually let a guy leave just in the nick of time, for once….
    I’m glad Reggie is running things now.
