Mike Goodson's season comes to end

A disappointing season has come to a premature end for Carolina running back Mike Goodson.

The Panthers announced Wednesday that Goodson has been placed on injured reserve. The Panthers have activated running back Josh Vaughn and linebacker Kion Wilson.

Goodson has been a non-factor for the Panthers this season. He did not have a single carry and lost his job as a return man after having problems with fumbles. That came after Goodson showed all sorts of promise last season, when he got 103 carries for 452 yards with three touchdowns.
