Jets' Goodson due in court in drug, weapons case

Posted: Updated:

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets running back Mike Goodson is due in court in New Jersey for a proceeding related to his arrest last month on drug and weapons charges.

Goodson was arrested last month along with a friend after they were found in a car stopped on Interstate 80. The men were charged with marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and weapons offenses stemming from a 45-caliber semi-automatic handgun that included a hollow-point bullet found in the vehicle.

Goodson has pleaded not guilty and has taken part in some preseason practices with the Jets.

The 25-year-old played three seasons for Carolina and one for Oakland before the Jets signed him to a 3-year, $6.9 million deal.

Wednesday's hearing is scheduled for state Superior Court in Morristown.

    Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was ejected for using a foreign substance less than two weeks after appearing to get away with it in another game against Boston, and the Red Sox beat New York 5-1 on Wednesday night. The right-hander was thrown out in the second inning when plate umpire Gerry Davis found a shiny substance on the right side of Pineda's neck after Red Sox manager John Farrell asked him to check.

    "The Star-Spangled Banner" played over Boylston Street in honor of an American winner of the Boston Marathon. One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keflezighi added Boston to a resume that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the 2013 bombing victims on his bib.
