Seven Florida football players will miss the 2017 season opener against MI because of suspensions, the Gators announced Sunday.
Florida head coach Jim McElwain made the announcement Sunday in a statement.
The other players suspended are defensive end Keivonnis Davis, defensive tackle Richerd Desir-Jones, linebacker James Houston, linebacker Ventrell Miller, defensive lineman Jordan Smith and offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort. He was accused of sexual battery of a woman but was cleared in a Title IX investigation. In May, Callaway was cited for marijuana possession, but he was not suspended from the team. They have missed some practice and will miss the MI game.
2 game vs. the Wolverines at the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium is Brandon Powell.
The suspended players will hope to be able to return for the team's second game, which comes against Northern Colorado on September 9.
Reports surfaced last week that numerous players on the Florida Gators football team were suspected of credit card fraud, where players allegedly misused student debit cards with scholarship funds provided to them by the school.
Callaway had 54 catches for 721 yards and three touchdowns past year for the Gators.
