Seven Gators suspended for season opener

Florida Suspends Antonio Callaway, Six Others For Season Opener vs. Michigan

Florida has announced that seven players, including WR Antonio Callaway, have been suspended for the season opener against MI. On Sunday afternoon, the team announced the suspensions of Callaway along with six other players. "Action has been taken-they have missed some practice and will miss the MI game. We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward", coach Jim McElwain said in a statement. Despite the citation, coach Jim McElwain had said at media day that all players were on track to play against MI. "As of right now, all hands on deck".

Callaway's suspension is the latest in a growing list of off-field issues for the junior - though past incidents have not resulted in suspensions.

Callaway, a junior from Miami, is the only starter among the group, but his absence is enough to compromise the No. 16 Gators' chances against the No. 9 Wolverines. Last season, he led the team in receptions (54) and receiving yards (721), and also was a co-leader in receiving touchdowns (3). He has also made a name for himself as a risky punt returner.

Callaway was also cited for marijuana possession during a traffic stop in May while in the auto with a guy who has a lengthy rap sheet.

In July, Callaway pleaded no contest to misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also investigated for a sexual assault and admitted he was high on marijuana when the assault took place, though he was later found not responsible.

Even though he is a first-year player, 6-foot-7 300-pound Telfort has impressed during preseason practices and should provide quality depth on the offensive line. The other two suspended defensive linemen - Desir-Jones and Smith - had a chance to play on special teams.
