The NFL has suspended New York Jets running back Mike Goodson for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, the Jets announced Monday.

Goodson, who signed with the team as a free agent in the off-season, has been MIA from training camp and the preseason "to focus on a personal matter," the Jets said. But the player is back.

"While we welcome Mike back to the organization, we have had direct conversations to make our expectations very clear as we work together to help him move forward in a positive manner, both on and off the field," team said in a statement.

He will be allowed to attend meetings and work on his fitness at the practice facility in Florham Park, but he won't be allowed to practice or play.

"I've been away from the team to take care of some important personal things. The time was helpful to me and now that I am back, I am going to do everything I can to contribute to the team," Goodson said in a statement released by the Jets. "I appreciate all of the support from the Jets organization and I'm thankful to be back with my teammates."

Goodson, who was busted on drugs and weapons charges in New Jersey in May, will be eligible to rejoin the roster on September 30, the day after the Jets play the Tennessee Titans.

    With the All-Star break over and the second half of the MLB season well underway, the New York Mets (46-52 as of July 20) and the New York Yankees (50-47 as of July 20) find themselves in the same situations each team is accustomed to at this time of the season. The Yankees are in the middle of the AL East Division title while the Mets are scrapping for every win possible to stay relevant in the NL East. But while the record says one thing, reality says another.
