Five players suspended for Florida's opener
Five Florida players are reportedly suspended for the team’s season opener against UMass on Saturday.
Cornerback Jalen Tabor and tight end C’yontai Lewis are suspended for fighting each other during fall camp. Wide receivers Tyrie Cleveland and Rick Wells are suspended for a BB gun incident in July which involved shooting the gun in an “occupied dwelling.” There is also an unnamed fifth player, but head coach Jim McElwain didn’t reveal his identity.
McElwain says some guys have made decisions not to play in this game. Translation: some guys suspended for opener. Didn’t give names

The news comes on the same day McElwain announced wide receiver Antonio Callaway was cleared to return to the team following a sexual assault case on Aug. 12. Callaway was suspended in January for a violation of the university’s code of conduct, but returned to practice during fall camp.
