Browns' B.J. Goodson: Questionable to face Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's AFC divisional-round matchup in Kansas City, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Goodson injured his shoulder during last weekend's wild-card win over Pittsburgh, in which he notched a season-high 10 tackles (eight solo). Jacob Phillips will stand to handle an increased role on defense during Sunday's must-win contest if Goodson can't go.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Hurts shoulder against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Goodson picked up the injury in the first half. The linebacker's coming off a strong regular season that included 91 tackles and two interceptions.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Activated from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

After testing positive for the COVID-19 virus, Goodson is able to return. The 27-year-old should resume his linebacker duties for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Steelers.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson is on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus Saturday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The 27-year-old will be unavailable for Sunday's contest against the Jets, and Tae Davis is expected to start at middle linebacker in his place. Goodson needs to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before rejoining the active roster.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Shifts to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

Goodson either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. He won't be eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Jets, and his status for a Week 17 matchup against the Steelers is in question as well. The 27-year-old has racked up a career-high 91 tackles through 14 games as the team's starting middle linebacker. Tae Davis appears set to start in Goodson's place this week.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Registers seven tackles in Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson collected seven total tackles during Sunday's 10-7 win against the Texans.

Goodson has started all nine of his appearances during his debut campaign with the Browns, thus far recording 65 tackles, three pass deflections, two interceptions, a fumble recovery and half a sack. The Clemson product's tackle total is already a new career high with seven games still remaining on the regular-season slate. Upcoming next is a matchup with Philadelphia's 24th-ranked scoring offense, as Goodson and the Browns try to push to a 7-3 mark.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Records second pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson had seven tackles and an interception in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals.

Goodson's second interception of the season stopped the Bengals in the red zone on the game's opening drive when Cincinnati got as far as the Browns' 2-yard line. The seven tackles gives him 52 for the season, within nine of the career-high 61 stops he recorded in 2018. Despite the positive contributions, however, Goodson graded out at replacement level (46.1), according to Pro Football Focus' metrics, Scott Patsko of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Notches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson posted 10 tackles and a half-sack in Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Steelers.

Goodson logged 57 of 65 defensive snaps (88 percent) en route to a team high in tackles. This was Goodson's first double-digit tackling effort of the season, and he's now up to 46 stops through six games. The fifth-year linebacker should comfortably hit 100 tackles for the first time in his career as long as he stays healthy since there's no true competition for his starting job at this time.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Stacks up nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson made nine tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 32-23 win over the Colts.

Goodson has yet to hit double-digit tackles in a game this year, but he leads the team with 36 total stops and is on pace to surpass the 100-tackle threshold for the first time in his career. It's a bit concerning that he doesn't play every snap like Joe Schobert used to do in Cleveland, but as long as Goodson is the starting middle linebacker, he'll be a viable IDP option.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Tackle leader Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson led the Browns with nine tackles and played 49 snaps (83 percent) in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.

There was roster churn at linebacker during the offseason and Mack Wilson's knee injury created more uncertainty. Those developments led to Goodson moving into a prominent role as the team's starter at middle linebacker. His previous career high in tackles was 61 in 15 games with the Giants in 2018, and Goodson could blow that away with a full season as a starter in 2020.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (personal) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Goodson was away from the team for personal reasons, but it appears he'll be ready for Sunday's game versus the Ravens. Although he missed a good chunk of training camp, if Goodson practices all week, his snap count shouldn't be affected much. The 27-year-old is lined up as the team's starting middle linebacker to start the season, so he's an intriguing IDP play after recording 37 tackles on 257 defensive snaps with the Packers last year.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Not at practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (personal) was not on the field for Sunday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Goodson has been in and out of practice the past 10 days while dealing with a personal issue. He is expected to start at middle linebacker Week 1 against the Ravens but has missed a good deal of time over the last week-and-a-half.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Rejoins team Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (personal) participated in Tuesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Goodson missed the last two days while tending to a personal situation, but he's back with the team preparing for Week 1's matchup versus the Ravens. The 27-year-old is in line for a potentially massive role with the Browns, as last year's middle linebacker Joe Schobert recorded 133 tackles last year.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (personal) didn't participate in Sunday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Goodson has high IDP upside as the favorite to start at middle linebacker for the Browns, as Joe Schobert -- now with the Jaguars -- posted 133 tackles in the position last season. There's no reason to think Goodson won't be ready for Week 1, but it's worth tracking his progress.

Browns' B.J. Goodson: Heading to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson agreed to terms Wednesday on a one-year contract with the Browns, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Goodson should at least temporarily slide into a starting role at middle linebacker for the Browns, who lost Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey via free agency earlier this week. The 26-year-old notched 37 tackles (23 solo) across 15 regular-season games with the Packers in 2019.

Packers' B.J. Goodson: Starts nine games in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson recorded 37 tackles over 15 regular-season games in 2019.

The Packers acquired Goodson via trade from the Giants just days before Week 1's game versus the Bears to serve alongside Blake Martinez. Despite making nine starts, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's scheme afforded Goodson an average of only 17 defensive snaps per game. Goodson and Martinez will both be unrestricted free agents in March.

Packers' B.J. Goodson: Exits Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions.

It's unclear how Goodson picked up the knock, however, he left the game in the third quarter. As long as the Clemson product is sidelined, Oren Burks and Ty Summers appear to be in line to see an increase in inside linebacker reps.

Packers' B.J. Goodson: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys with a neck injury.

Goodson was hurt on kickoff coverage to open the second half. It's unlikely he returns to the game, and Oren Burks was his replacement at inside linebacker. Expect Goodson to be evaluated Monday to give us an idea of his status for Week 6's game versus the Lions.

Packers' B.J. Goodson: Heading to Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants dealt Goodson to the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Blake Martinez aside, the Packers are a bit thin at inside linebacker with Oren Burks tending to a partially torn left pectoral, so this move makes sense on paper. With the Giants, Goodson recorded at least six tackles in 10 of his 22 appearances the past two seasons, making him a decent fill-in next to Martinez while Burks continues his recovery. However, Goodson may not get that opportunity due to the impressive preseason put together by rookie Ty Summers.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Makes preseason appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson logged two tackles (one solo) in Friday's preseason game against the Bears.

Goodson notched his first tackle on a second-quarter kick return and then assisted on one on the very next play to keep a pass play short. He'd assist on one more to open the third quarter and logged 22 defensive and 10 special-teams snaps in total. The 26-year-old seems past his hamstring issue from earlier this month and is poised to start if Alec Ogletree's calf issue lingers for any reason.
