Goodson (back) was available off the bench Tuesday against Portland in the U.S. Open Cup.

While Goodson started in the first two games of the season, the injury may have cost him his starting role. Both Marvell Wynne and Andres Imperiale have played well in his absence, but if they begin to struggle, Goodson could reclaim his center back role.

Goodson scored the ultimate winner off a header in the 53rd minute of Friday's 1-0 result over Colorado.

Goodson found himself in front of the net after a failed set piece and was able to pound home the short cross from Quincy Amarikwa. The defender has been surprisingly productive this season as he now has two goals and two assists, both career-highs after seven years in the league.

Goodson suffered a knock during Sunday's game against the Whitecaps and had to be subbed off the field in the 13th minute for Paulo Renato.
