Backup wide receiver Rick Wells also was suspended, which means Florida now has 10 players suspended for the opener.

Earlier this month the school announced the suspension of seven players on the roster, including leading receiver Antonio Callaway, as the players were involved with fraud relating to their scholarship funds.

ESPN.com's Edward Aschoff reported the suspensions were due to players "making improper charges on their student IDs at the school bookstore and then selling those items for cash". Callaway led the Gators with 54 catches for 721 yards in 2016 while Scarlett rushed for 889 yards and six scores.

Callaway is one of Florida's most unsafe weapons on offense, accounting for 721 yards and three touchdowns, along with 218 yards returning. It was a huge bump in playing time following a freshman season in which he toted the rock only nine times. In May, Callaway was cited for marijuana possession, but he was not suspended, and McElwain stated he was dealing with the situation internally, without a public announcement of discipline.
