Florida will be without one of its top offensive playmakers, wide receiver/kick returner Antonio Callaway, and six other players as it faces MI for its 2017 season opener in Arlington, Texas.

Callaway is the biggest name and lone starter of the group.

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. Last season, he led the team in receptions (54) and receiving yards (721), and also was a co-leader in receiving touchdowns (3).

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

China Willing to Pay the Price of North Korea Sanctions
The meeting comes as the USA and Asian nations join together to try to step up Pyongyang's economic and diplomatic isolation. China's new-found cooperation came after the UN Security Council on August 5 imposed sweeping new sanctions on North Korea.


"We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward", the coach said.

The 20-year-old is in his third season with Florida and has developed into one of the team's top players. The players bought electronics with funds meant to be used for school - a practice not uncommon among student-athletes - but then allegedly sold these electronics and told UF their cards had been stolen or lost. The amount of the purchases is not known, nor is the length of the suspensions.

Callaway, a junior from Miami, has had multiple issues at Florida, but this will be his first suspension for a game. Callaway admitted to smoking marijuana in those court documents, although he was eventually cleared of the allegation by a Title IX investigation.
