Antonio Callway, six other Florida Gators suspended for Michigan game



The Florida Gators have suspended seven players, including star receiver Antonio Callaway, for the blockbuster Sept. 2 season opener against Michigan, UF announced Sunday.

The six other players (besides Callaway) suspended: Offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort, linebacker James Houston, defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis, defensive lineman Jordan Smith, defensive lineman Richerd Desir-Jones and linebacker Ventrell Miller.

"We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing," UF 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."

The specific nature of those "choices" was not disclosed.
