NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A struggling offense just got worse.

Jets running back Mike Goodson tweeted on Monday that he tore two ligaments in his left knee in New York’s 19-6 loss to Pittsburgh.

Goodson tweeted that the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in the knee were torn when he was trying to make a tackle on Lawrence Timmons’ game-sealing interception of Geno Smith in the fourth quarter. Goodson’s knee was hit into by teammate Brian Winters on the play.

He needed to be helped off the field, and an MRI exam Monday morning confirmed the damage. Coach Rex Ryan was scheduled to speak to the media later Monday.

Goodson, signed as a free agent in March, was playing his second game since returning from a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
