Goodson will be making his season debut after being suspended the first four games for a substance abuse violation. He missed all of training camp and preseason after being arrested on weapons and drug charges in the offseason. He's still working his way into football shape and may play only a small role in Week 5, if he's active at all. Bilal Powell remains the starter in New York's backfield.

The Jets are starting to get healthy at running back as Chris Ivory returned to practice Friday after missing Week 3 with a hamstring injury. The team also promoted wide receiver Michael Campbell from the practice squad. Campbell is expected to see playing time with Santonio Holmes out and Stephen Hill questionable to play.
