Jets’ Ellis, Smith active for AFC title game

Jets coach Rex Ryan said Friday that those starters listed as questionable on the injury report would be ready to go against the Steelers. He was true to his word.

Jets CB Drew Coleman (knee), DE Shaun Ellis (knee), safety James Ihedigbo (knee, ankle) and WR/KR Brad Smith (groin), all deemed questionable Friday, will be active for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.

Smith, the Jets’ dynamic kick returner, sat out last Sunday’s 28-21 divisional playoff victory over the Patriots.

For the second consecutive week, FB John Conner and DE Vernon Gholston were kept off New York’s active roster.

As expected, Steelers DE Aaron Smith was inactive as he continue to recover from a triceps injury.

Full inactives list:

Jets
Kellen Clemens (No. 3 QB)
FB John Conner
DE Vernon Gholston
DT Jarron Gilbert
TE Matthew Mulligan
TE Jeff Cumberland
WR Patrick Turner
DE Marcus Dixon

Steelers
Charlie Batch (No. 3 QB)
S Will Allen
RB Jonathan Dwyer
CB Crezdon Butler
OT Chris Scott
OT Tony Hills
DE Steve McLendon
DE Aaron Smith
