“It was really worrying at the beginning because I’ve experienced injuries throughout my career, but it’s never been something that has turned into a disadvantageous situation if not taken care of,” Goodwin told the team’s website. “It was scary at first, but I’m comfortable with it now. I’ve prayed and handed it over to God. It’s beyond my control, and the only thing I can control is my effort and attitude and how I work every day to move forward.”
