Jets running back Mike Goodson was back on the field with his teammates Wednesday after serving his four-game suspension. It was the first practice Goodson has participated in this season and he said he is ready to play Monday night in Atlanta. “It just felt good to get out there and run you know what I mean? I felt good” Goodson said. “I’m in shape. I was pretty nervous about that. It’s pretty hard to simulate an NFL practice but I felt good out there. I wasn’t gassed. I’m pretty good on my playbook. I knew my plays.” Goodson’s suspension came following his arrest in May on drug and gun charges that Goodson still faces. He missed all of training camp for “personal reasons” and then was suspended by the NFL when he returned to the team. He has been able to work out at the team’s training center and attend meetings but he was unable to practice before Wednesday. Goodson who was signed by the Jets in March said he can’t wait for Monday. “It means everything” Goodson said. “It means a lot. I’ve put a lot into these last couple of months these last four weeks. I’ve had a lot of time to think and get things together. I’m excited about it.” Goodson is still not officially on the 53-man roster. The Jets can wait until the end of the week to move him to the roster for the game. He is currently listed as active-exempt. Coach Rex Ryan said he is unsure how much Goodson will play Monday night. “We’ll see as the week goes on” Ryan said. “Clearly he hasn’t done any football work. So we’ll see where he’s at conditioning-[wise] and everything else.”
