Goodson (shin) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports. Goodson was thought to have had a chance at playing this week after sitting out Week 2 with an unspecified shin injury. His absence further weakens an already suspect Giants linebacking corps.
Goodson (shin) didn't practice Wednesday. Goodson burst onto the scene in Week 1 with 18 tackles (14 solo) at Dallas and seemed poised to break out as the signal caller of a talent-laden defense. However, he suddenly landed on the final Week 2 injury report due to a leg issue, which kept him in street clothes Monday versus the Lions. According to Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, Goodson said that his injury is "not exactly" a shin issue, but wouldn't clarify further. In the end, Goodson considers himself day-to-day, which jibes with the Giants' suggestion that he'll only be sidelined in the short term, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.
Goodson (leg) is expected to be back for Week 3's contest against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Goodson's absence Monday night came as a bit of a surprise considering the linebacker was a full participant in practice all week. However, it appears as though the leg injury is a minor one, so while the Giants will give an official update on Goodson's status later this week, the expectation is that he'll return to practice and be active Sunday.
Goodson (leg) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Lions, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Goodson was questionable coming into Monday's matchup after being a full participant in practice all week until Saturday, so his absence comes as a fairly big surprise. He had 18 total tackles in Week 1, and the Giants will now likely lean on Calvin Munson to make up for that lost production at middle linebacker in Week 2.
Goodson (leg) is officially listed as questionable for Monday night's contest against the Lions, Tom Rock of NewsDay.com reports. Goodson's presence on the injury report is somewhat surprising, as he was a full practice participant all week before Saturday's DNP. However, he's apparently been nursing a leg injury. The issue does not appear serious, and the 24-year-old is presumably on track to take the field barring any setbacks. Goodson burst onto the fantasy radar in Week 1, tallying 18 tackles (14 solo) in his season debut.
