Gators tailback Jordan Scarlett among two suspended for opener against MI

Florida announced Wednesday it has suspended two more players for Saturday's game against MI, including junior starting running back Jordan Scarlett.

Junior running back Jordan Scarlett, the team's leading rusher last season, and redshirt freshman Rick Wells have been suspended from team activities by coach Jim McElwain.

Freshman wide receiver James Robinsonwas also suspended after he was cited for marijuana possession earlier this month. That brings to 10 the total number of Florida players suspended for Saturday's game in Arlington, Texas.

Maj. Brad Barber, spokesman for University of Florida Police Department, confirmed to ESPN's Mark Schlabach on Wednesday that the department had one active investigation into allegations of credit card fraud involving UF players.

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. Of the 10, Callaway, Scarlett and backup defensive end Keivonnis Davis were the only ones who would've seen appreciable time against MI.

The Gators now have 10 players suspended for their season opener with MI on Saturday. He previously was suspended for hsi involvement in BB gun incident with receiver Tyrie Cleveland. Now the Gators will be without their best running back, too.

Scarlett, a 206-pounder, led the Gators with 889 yards and 6 touchdowns previous year - taking over the starting job after the beginning of the season. He was suspended from the team, along with former quarterback Treon Harris, in January 2016 in the wake of a sexual assault claim made against the two.
