Goldman's latest injury cost him the last three games of the season, and he only played six games in what was expected to be a breakout year for the second-year defensive tackle. In 21 career contests, he's compiled seven sacks, and assuming he can put together a healthy off-season, he could be a sneaky IDP draft pick with playmaking ability as an interior lineman when he returns to the team for the second year of a four-year contract.
Goldman (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Goldman injured his ankle in Week 14 and Chicago had been hoping he'd be able to return in the final three weeks of the season. Now shut down for the year, Goldman won't need to rush his recovery and he'll be full recovered for offseason practices.
Goldman was held out of practice last week prior to missing Chicago's Week 15 loss to Green Bay. He's not yet back to full health, but head coach John Fox wouldn't go so far as to clarify Goldman's status for the final two games. His practice participation this week will give a better indication of his status for Saturday's game against the Redskins.
Goldman (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Packers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Not all to surprising considering that Goldman spent the entire week of practice on the sidelines. Look for C.J. Wilson to fill in at nose tackle in Goldman's absence.
Goldman was unable to practice all week, likely making him more on the doubtful side of questionable. However, his status will not be determined until closer to game-time Sunday. C.J. Wilson figures to fill in at nose tackle should Goldman not be able to play.
