31 August 2017

Just a day after star running back Jordan Scarlett met with reporters and said he was prepared for Florida to "put this game on my back", the team announced Wednesday that he and wide receiver Rick Wells have been suspended from team activities.

Wells is a redshirt freshman receiver who did not play past year. That brings to 10 the total number of Florida players suspended for Saturday's game in Arlington, Texas. Of the 10, Callaway, Scarlett and backup defensive end Keivonnis Davis were the only ones who would've seen appreciable time against MI.

The football players in Gainesville can't seem to stay out of trouble.

The Gators might be in trouble against MI with another receiver out - Robinson would have replaced Callaway (already suspended) in the season opener.

He previously was suspended for hsi involvement in BB gun incident with receiver Tyrie Cleveland. Miller, Houston, and Smith are freshmen, but Davis earned five starts last season.
