Seven Florida football players are suspended for the season opener September 2 against MI, the school announced Sunday. They have missed some practice and will miss the MI game.

The biggest blow here is obviously the loss of Callaway, who is one of Florida's most risky weapons on offense, accounting for 721 yards and three touchdowns, along with 218 yards returned.

Other players suspended are freshman linebacker James Houston, freshman offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort, junior defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis, freshman defensive lineman Jordan Smith, sophomore defensive lineman Richerd Desir-Jones and freshman linebacker Ventrell Miller.

Bryce Harper suffers serious injury against Giants
On Saturday, he consistently shut down Cubs threats while scattering five hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings. Manager Dusty Baker said Harper hyperextended his left knee and was scheduled to have an MRI on Sunday.

Callaway was cited for pot possession earlier this spring. Callaway admitted to smoking marijuana in those court documents, although he was eventually cleared of the allegation by a Title IX investigation. The junior led the Gators with 54 catches and 721 receiving yards last season while adding four touchdowns from scrimmage. Of the other players suspended, Davis has started five games and the rest are reserves.

Those seven players will not be available to face off against the Michigan Wolverines in their season opener. He was also the Gators' primary punt returner.
