Florida Suspends Callaway, 6 Others For Opener Vs. Michigan

By MARK LONG/AP Sports Writer

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Florida has suspended troubled receiver Antonio Callaway and six others for the team’s season opener against Michigan.

A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press the players were suspended for misusing school-issued funds. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity Sunday because Florida did not release details of the suspensions.

Callaway, defensive end Keivonnis Davis, defensive lineman Richerd Desir-Jones, linebacker James Houston, linebacker Ventrell Miller, defensive lineman Jordan Smith and offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort won’t be allowed to play Sept. 2 against the Wolverines in Arlington, Texas.

Coach Jim McElwain says: “We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing. 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.”
