Florida suspends 7 players — including star WR Antonio Callaway — for season opener against Michigan

Seven Florida football players will miss the 2017 season opener against Michigan because of suspensions, the Gators announced Sunday.

James Houston, Kadeem Telfort, Keivonnis Davis, Antonio Callaway, Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones, and Ventrell Miller were all suspended for “violating team rules.”

“We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing,” Florida head coach Jim McElwain said in a statement. “Action has been taken – they have missed some practice and will miss the Michigan game. We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward.”

Callaway is the biggest name and lone starter of the group. He had 1,399 receiving yards and seven touchdowns last season.
