FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Brad Smith, the Jets wide receiver and kick returner, leads Sunday's list of inactives as the Jets prepare to face the Patriots for the third time this season in an AFC divisional game.

Smith injured his groin in the first half of last weekend's wild card win over the Colts.

The Patriots will be without defensive lineman Myron Pryor, whose back injury has suffered a setback. They will also play without running backs Thomas Clayton and Fred Taylor, wide receiver Taylor Price, offensive linemen Rich Ohrnberger and Mark LeVoir, outside linebacker Marques Murrell, and cornerback Tony Carter.

The rest of the Jets' inactives are fullback John Conner, defensive end Vernon Gholston, defensive tackle Jarron Gilbert, tight end Jeff Cumberland, tight end Matt Mulligan, defensive tackle Marcus Dixon and third quarterback Kellen Clemens.

Smith was one of three players listed as questionable; the other two were cornerback Drew Coleman and safety James Ihedigbo.

Information from ESPNNewYork.com's Jane McManus was used in this report.
