The Florida Gators suspended receiver Antonio Callaway and six others for the season opener against Michigan. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press the players were suspended for misusing school-issued funds. The person spoke on 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.

Callaway is the team's top offensive playmaker. In two seasons, the junior has 89 catches for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns. Davis was expected to be a key contributor in Florida's defensive line rotation. He had 27 tackles, 1? sacks and a forced fumble in 2016.
