Jets LB Gholston, KR Miller inactive vs. Jaguars

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Jets linebacker Vernon Gholston and kick returner Justin Miller are inactive for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Gholston was doubtful because of a strained hamstring. Miller, re-signed by the Jets two weeks ago, was a healthy scratch and replaced on returns by Dwight Lowery.

Wide receiver Brad Smith and cornerback Lito Sheppard both returned to the Jets after missing a few weeks with quadriceps injuries. Lowery is starting at cornerback, but Sheppard will be in the rotation.

Wide receiver Danny Woodhead and cornerback Ahmad Carroll also are among the Jets' inactives.

Among the Jaguars' inactives are Gerald Alexander (shoulder), replaced at strong safety by Sean Considine, and tight end Ernest Wilford (ankle).
