Antonio Morrison is a big part of the Florida defense which lost considerable talent to the NFL this past offseason. It appears that the Gators will now be without Morrison for “at least” two games to start the season. The suspension comes after Morrison was arrested this weekend after an altercation with a police dog.
Reports say that Morrison was “barking” at the dog. Somehow, this led to an arrest.
Despite the unusual arrest, Muschamp was swift in delivering a suspension. Florida has been on the wrong side of criticism related to player discipline in recent years going back to Urban Meyer, so it’s not surprising to see Muschamp act quickly.
Florida plays Toledo on opening week, then travels to Miami to take on the Hurricanes.
