Jordan Scarlett, Rick Wells suspended from all team activities

Florida faces tough challenge of rebuilding stout defense

Florida announced Wednesday the suspension of running back Jordan Scarlett and wide receiver Rick Wells "from all team activities", making it an even 10 expected to sit out of Saturday's season opener against MI at AT&T Stadium (3:30 p.m., ABC).

As if that wasn't damaging enough to their chances on Saturday, Wednesday they announced the suspension of leading rusher Jordan Scarlett as well as another wide receiver on the roster in Rick Wells.

Scarlett and Wells, a redshirt freshman wide receiver who is out with injury, are suspended indefinitely and will not travel with the team to Arlington, Texas, for the opener. Those were Callaway, offensive linemen Kadeem Telfort and Richerd Desir-Jones, linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller, and defensive linemen Jordan Smith and Keivonnis Davis. But Florida's sweeping suspensions of seven players also suggested that the program had found the full breadth of whatever misdeeds had been done, and a subsequent suspension for related activities sure seems to undercut that notion.




The Gators now have 10 players suspended for their season opener with MI on Saturday. He tops Florida's running back depth chart, with Lamical Perine and Mark Thompson behind him.

New information came to light recently that Scarlett and Wells were also involved in the misuse of school-issued funds scheme that caused Callaway and six others to earn suspensions. Callaway, a junior and the team's top playmaker, has 89 catches for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons. Star wide receiver Antonio Callaway already had been suspended. It was a huge bump in playing time following a freshman season in which he toted the rock only nine times.
