Mike Goodson's trademark speed was noticeably absent on the practice field Wednesday. But his non-attendance wasn’t related to his legal issues.

The running back – who was arrested May 17 on weapons and drugs charges – reportedly missed voluntary OTA because of a stomach bug.

Goodson practiced for the first time with the Jets last week but has yet to speak to reporters on advice of his attorney. 

Despite the running back's limited practice time, Rex Ryan said Goodson has done "a good job."

"The guy does have the physical talent that really does impress you," said the Jets coach,. who added that he expects Goodson to attend next week's mandatory minicamp (June 11-13).

Goodson, however, is scheduled to appear in court next Wednesday.
