Goodson signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Goodson joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa this past offseason. Wound up competing for the team's No. 3 running spot during the preseason, but he was eventually waived in late August before quickly re-joining via the practice squad. Goodson was bumped up to the active roster for the Week 17 win over Minnesota, though he never saw the field against the Vikings. The 22-year-old is now set to compete with Patrick Taylor for a depth role this offseason.

Goodson reverted to Green Bay's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Goodson was promoted to the active roster for the first time ahead of Sunday's win against the Vikings. However, the undrafted rookie never wound up seeing the field Week 17, as Patrick Taylor served as the Packers' No. 3 running back and Keisean Nixon handled return duties on special teams. Goodson will now look to make his NFL debut if he is once again elevated from the practice squad for the team's crucial Week 18 matchup against Detroit.

Goodson was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
Analysis: Aaron Jones (knee/ankle) was able to shed his injury status Friday, so it's entirely possible Goodson's elevation simply is a safety net for the status of return man Keisean Nixon (groin). The undrafted rookie could make his first NFL appearance Sunday against the Vikings.
