Florida Suspends Seven Players for Opener vs. Michigan
Florida head coach Jim McElwain has suspended seven players, including Florida's best receiver, for the season opener against Michigan.
The seven, including wide receiver Antonio Callaway were suspended for making unauthorized purchases with their ID and then selling those items for cash.
The others are offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort, linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller and defensive linemen Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones and Keivonnis Davis.
It's not the first time Callaway has run afoul. He was suspended back in December, 2015 amid sexual assault allegations. He was cleared of the charges in August, 2016 and reinstated to the team. He admitted to being high on marijuana at the time of the alleged incident.
Then in May, Callaway was arrested for marijuana possession after officers smelled marijuana coming from a vehicle in which Callaway was a passenger. Officers found seven grams of marijuana in his pocket. Charges were dropped after a plea deal and Callaway paid $301.00 in fines.
Callaway caught 54 passes for 721 yards and three touchdowns last season.
The players are expected to return the items or repay the bookstore.
