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.

James Houston, Kadeem Telfort, Keivonnis Davis, Antonio Callaway, Jordan Smith, Richerd Desir-Jones, and Ventrell Miller were all suspended for "violating team rules".

The biggest blow here is obviously the loss of Callaway, who is one of Florida's most unsafe weapons on offense, accounting for 721 yards and three touchdowns, along with 218 yards returned. Action has been taken - they have missed some practice and will miss the MI game. In July, he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia after police found marijuana in his pocket during a traffic stop. According to the Tampa Bay Times, a second Title IX investigation by the federal government has been opened and it appears to be releated to Callaway's case at the school.

Callaway had 54 catches for 721 yards and three touchdowns past year for the Gators.

He is also the team's top returner with his ability to make an impact on both punts and kickoffs.

Those seven players will not be available to face off against the Michigan Wolverines in their season opener.

Davis had 27 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 2016 and he and the other suspended players are projected backups for the Gators. He had 45 catches for 387 yards a year ago.
