Goodson, a Klein Collins High School graduate, came to Texas A&M in 2006 and earned an All-Big 12 honorable mention his freshman season after leading the team in rushing. He started six of 13 games in 2007, and his production declined in 2008. He left the team after that season, and was drafted into the NFL in 2009.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) A person familiar with the situation tells the Associated Press that Jets running back Mike Goodson is expected to return to practice Tuesday despite his legal troubles.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the team hasn't announced anything regarding Goodson's status. He missed the Jets' first three Organized Team Activity practices this week after being arrested last Friday on multiple charges of drug and weapons possession. He offered a plea of not guilty to all charges Wednesday in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, N.J.

The Jets' next OTA will be Tuesday. It will be the fourth of 10 voluntary practices this spring.

Goodson has also played for Oakland and Carolina in his four NFL seasons, and has 722 career yards rushing.
