A week after the Jets released Mike Goodson after he skipped the team's mandatory minicamp, Goodson was due in Morris County (N.J.) court Thursday to face a status conference for his two weapons charges.
But he didn't make an appearance, and, as the Newark Star Ledger writes, Superior Court judge Mary Gibbons Whipple said that if Goodson doesn't show for his next appearance, he'll be headed to jail.
Goodson failed to show up for mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, just the latest in a string of complications since the running back signed with the Jets over a year ago.
“Obviously it’s disappointing,” GM John Idzik said Wednesday. “We gave Mike, we feel in good conscience, every opportunity here with the Jets and unfortunately it didn’t work out so we made the move ultimately that we felt was best for the team.”
This doesn't have much of a fantasy impact with the arrival of Chris Johnson, but it's noteworthy nonetheless. Goodson has talent, but it doesn't matter if he can't keep things together off the field.

Troubled New York Jets running back Mike Goodson, still facing legal issues from an arrest last year, didn’t report Tuesday morning for the start of the team’s three-day mandatory minicamp, according to a league source.
Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 7:48pm
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he hasn't heard a word from RB Mike Goodson, who hasn't attended any of the eight organize team activity practices, but he "definitely" expects the troubled running back to show up for next week's minicamp based on the fact that it's mandatory.
Daryl Richardson wasn't out of work for long.
Richardson joins a crowded backfield in New York that includes free-agent pickup Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell. CJ2K and the bruising Ivory are expect to split time and receive the bulk of carries.
Richardson will likely replace Alex Green or Mike Goodson. Richardson will likely be behind Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell on the depth chart.

Mike Goodson’s absence should create a bigger role for Jets RB Chris Ivory, who had just four carries Sunday. Ivory, who came to the Jets in a trade from New Orleans, said he is not frustrated by his limited role, but hopes the Jets will run more. Ivory has 115 yards on 34 carries this year.
The plan all along for Ivory was for him to get a lot of work, but he couldn't stay on the field in camp and once the season started, and lost the job to Bilal Powell, who has played pretty well at times. With Goodson now done for the year, Ivory has a chance to play a much bigger role. Given the team traded for him, they likely still want him to be more involved. He may be worth stashing on your roster to see how this plays out over the next couple of weeks.

Jets RB Mike Goodson (illness, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 6. Goodson should be fine to face the Steelers. He's mired in a three-man RBBC so he isn't a good fantasy option at this point.

Stephen Hill's availability is a bit of a surprise, but it looks like he's good to go for Monday night. If he were questionable, we would avoid him, but the probable tag means he's virtually certain to play. He is a risk/reward start in a nice matchup with the Falcons.

He injury his hamstring in practice on Friday but coach Rex Ryan downplayed the injury saying he wasn't overly concerned. He would likely have a limited role in the Jets game this week behind Bilal Powell.

Jets RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) missed practice Thursday. This is either a setback or a scheduled day of rest. He is unlikely to play on Monday night, leaving Bilal Powell, Alex Green and Mike Goodson as the Jets' healthy running backs.

Coach Rex Ryan was non-committal on whether RB Mike Goodson would play, noting that he's not in football shape. Chances are, Goodson will have a small role, perhaps spot duty at running back and kickoff returner -- an area that could use a spark. With Chris Ivory still recovering from a hamstring injury, the Jets could use another pair of legs to help Bilal Powell in the backfield.
Look for Goodson to play a minor role on Monday night, especially if Chris Ivory, who returned to practice this week, is able to suit up. Bilal Powell should be a safe start against the Falcons.

Goodson has been suspended since Aug. 31 for a violation of the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. The suspension stemmed from an incident in May when Goodson and another man were found in an SUV on Route 80 in possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets. Goodson was intoxicated and transported to the hospital.
Goodson worked out twice a day to stay in shape and he said he's ready to go. He'll compete for RB2 duties behind Bilal Powell. Keep in mind Chris Ivory is out with a hamstring injury with no timetable to return.
