Seven Florida football players will miss the 2017 season opener against MI because of suspensions, the Gators announced Sunday.

Among those suspended is wide receiver Antonio Callaway, the Gators most risky offensive player.

Florida head coach Jim McElwain made the announcement Sunday in a statement.

While Davis was expected to make an impact along the defensive line, Callaway is easily the biggest name on the list.

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. "Action has been taken - they have missed some practice and will miss the MI game", coach Jim McElwain said in a statement. He was cited for marijuana possession in May, but this suspension is for an unrelated incident.

The team's leading receiver has missed time before. He was accused of sexual battery of a woman but was cleared in a Title IX investigation.

He did not practice with the team that spring, but returned to classes during the summer and participated fully in fall practice.
