Florida Gators receiver Antonio Callaway pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possessing drug paraphernalia Monday morning. His misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession was dropped, which is typical for cases like this. He will also pay a $301 fine. 

Monday's court proceedings resolve a case dating back to May, when UF's top offensive playmaker admitted to having marijuana in an early-morning traffic stop.

The next question is: What does this mean for Callaway's status for the Sept. 2 season opener against Michigan? Coach Jim McElwain hasn't said, and I don't expect him to say anything until the week of the game.

UF's policy calls for a suspension for a second positive marijuana test. Callaway hasn't had one (to our knowledge), but he does have two public incidents. During the school's investigation of a sexual assault allegation, he admitted to being high during the encounter. He was cleared of the sexual assault accusation in that case.
