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.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Out with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson is not practicing due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

The good news for Goodson is that the injury is not believed to be serious, so any time missed for Goodson this early in training camp is likely just precautionary. Goodson has dealt with a number of injuries over the last couple of seasons, appearing in 22 regular-season games between the two.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson recorded nine tackles and a pass defensed across 46 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Goodson's nine tackles were the most he's had in a single game so far this season, as the linebacker played in 66 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. He now has 50 tackles (36 solo) on the season and will look to finish out the season on a high note over these next two weeks.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (neck) is active for Sunday's game at Washington.

A limited practice participant throughout Week 13 prep, Goodson was ruled out on that week's final injury report. He maintained a similar level of activity this week, only to emerge with a "questionable" designation. With his availability confirmed, he'll look to rack up tackles against a Mark Sanchez-helmed offense.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Goodson was unable to play against the Bears last week, but he returned to practice this week and has a chance to play against the Redskins. Tae Davis (ankle) is also questionable, which could leave Ukeme Eligwe with an increased role if either is unable to suit up Sunday.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears with a neck injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Goodson was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday but apparently didn't show enough Friday to warrant the questionable tag. The 25-year-old is set to miss his first game of the season, as Tae Davis (ankle) and Nathan Stupar project to see increased snaps at inside linebacker.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Retakes field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (shoulder) returned to Monday's game against the Giants, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Goodson briefly exited Monday's game due to what appeared to be a shoulder stinger. The third-year linebacker was examined in the medical tent, and has been cleared to return to the field.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Exits game with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson exited Monday's game against the Giants due to a shoulder injury, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Goodson appeared to suffer a shoulder stinger during the third quarter of Monday's tilt against the Giants, and walked off the field. If Goodson is unable to return, expect Nathan Stupar to slot into the starting lineup.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson recorded eight tackles (seven solo) and one tackle for a loss during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Redskins.

Goodson led the G-Men in tackles during the team's Week 8 loss, and logged his highest tackle total of the season. The third-year pro will look to log another strong performance against the 49ers after New York's bye week.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Expected to keep starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants likely plan on starting Goodson (ankle) and Alec Ogletree at inside linebacker as they transition to more 3-4 looks under new defensive coordinator James Bettcher, Paul Schwartz of The New York Post reports.

Goodson dealt with shin and ankle injuries throughout 2017, eventually landing on injured reserve ahead of the season finale. He finished with 53 tackles and a forced fumble in seven games, despite logging only 374 defensive snaps (53.4 per contest). The Giants traded for Ogletree to stabilize a linebacking corps that's long been problematic, but it doesn't seem the new acquisition will put Goodson out of a starting job. It is possible Goodson will be limited to a two-down role, as Ogletree figures to stay on the field for all three downs. There's also some chance the situation will need to be revisited after the NFL Draft.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Goodson has been dealing with persistent lower-body injuries throughout the season, missing eight games and playing only 75 percent or more snaps in three of the seven contests in which he's suited up. The 2-13 Giants won't ask Goodson to play through the pain in a meaningless season finale Sunday against the Redskins, so the middle linebacker will turn his focus to getting healthy heading into the team's offseason program. Goodson wraps up the 2017 campaign with 53 tackles (37 solo), two pass breakups and a forced fumble.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Will sit out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Goodson has been battling this ankle injury all season, and although he played in Week 15 against Philly, he had to leave early with a setback. The second-year pro has averaged 7.6 stops per game, even though he's often been limited.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Goodson's woes with his ankle continued Sunday, and now he'll have to shift his focus to getting ready for Week 16's game against the Cardinals. He's already missed seven games battling this injury.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Hurts ankle again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles with an ankle injury.

Goodson has been dealing with an ankle injury for a majority of the season, and when he returned in Week 13 to play the Raiders, he tweaked it again. This is likely another setback, and undrafted rookie Calvin Munson will step in at middle linebacker for the time being.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Cleared to play Sunday vs. Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The middle linebacker will be available for just the second time in seven games, after he was able to practice all week, albeit on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday. Goodson compiled a season-high 18 tackles Week 1 against the Cowboys, but the extensive time he has missed will make it tough to trust him in IDP settings during the fantasy playoffs.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Goodson missed four straight games with the same ankle injury before returning to action for the Week 13 loss to the Raiders, during which he aggravated the issue. With Goodson failing to practice Friday after managing only limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, he'll be sidelined again this weekend. Expect Calvin Munson to fill in for Goodson at middle linebacker.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Tweaks ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to an ankle injury.

Goodson was kept out of the previous four games with an ankle injury, and although it's unclear if this is the same problem, the Giants likely exercise caution before allowing him to return. Expect undrafted rookie Calvin Munson to slot in at middle linebacker for the time being.

Giants' B.J. Goodson: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goodson (ankle) was limited in practice throughout the week, but will play Sunday against the Raiders.

Goodson will return from a four-game absence, presumably sliding right back into a starting role at linebacker. Over five appearances this season, Goodson has compiled 42 stops (32 solo) and two pass breakups, highlighted by an 18-tackle performance in Week 1.
