Antonio Callaway, 6 other Gators suspended for MI game

Florida has suspended seven players for its season-opener against MI on September 2 (3:30 ET on ABC) - including its top playmaker, wide receiver Antonio Callaway.

Florida head coach Jim McElwain made the announcement Sunday in a statement.

The other players suspended include offensive linemen Kadeem Telfort and Richerd Desir-Jones, linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller, and defensive linemen Jordan Smith and Keivonnis Davis. He was accused of sexual battery of a woman but was cleared in a Title IX investigation. They have missed some practice and will miss the MI game. He was cited for marijuana possession in May, but this suspension is for an unrelated incident.

Florida kicks off its season September 2 against MI at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas in the first-ever regular season meeting between the two programs. The junior led the Gators with 54 catches and 721 receiving yards last season while adding four touchdowns from scrimmage.

Davis had 27 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 2016 and he and the other suspended players are projected backups for the Gators.

According to 247Sports, the players are being suspended for a misuse of school-issued funds intended for specific use.
