Jim McElwain updates status of suspended Florida players
When Florida takes the field against Northern Colorado this week, the Gators will get one of their 10 suspended players back in action, coach Jim McElwain announced on Monday.
Receiver James Robinson, who was cited for marijuana possession, was the eighth Gator suspended in a string of preseason punishments. Others suspended were star receiver Antonio Callaway and starting running back Jordan Scarlett, both who were among a slew of players caught up in the credit card fraud and misuse of school funds case.
Robinson and linebacker Ventrell Miller were cited for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, and, according to university police, they were found with the drugs at their dormitory after a smell of marijuana emanated from their room.
