Jaguars' Najee Goode: Absent from injury report

A toe injury kept Goode sidelined from last week's victory over the Jets, but he has now officially been cleared for Week 9.

Surpassing rookie Quincy Williams for the start Sunday, Goode made his presence felt by getting his first sack of the campaign.

Goode is listed as the starting SAM linebacker on the Colts' first official depth chart of the preseason, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Indy's linebacking corps are in flux this preseason, so his spot on the depth chart this early doesn't mean he'll win the starting job.
