Scarlett and redshirt freshman receiver Rick Wells will join eight other players coach Jim McElwain has suspended for the most high-profile season opener for the Gators in decades. That brings to 10 the total number of Florida players suspended for Saturday's game in Arlington, Texas.

Wells redshirted past year as a freshman. Of the 10, Callaway, Scarlett and backup defensive end Keivonnis Davis were the only ones who would've seen appreciable time against MI.

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.

The Gators now have 10 players suspended for their opener against the Michigan Wolverines, making a tough task even tougher.

The military announced the casualties on August 25, saying the attacks took place overnight on police and border outposts. That's where about 100 people from three villages, Thabeit Taung, Kin Chaung and Thabawh Chaung, have taken refuge, too.


Scarlett led Florida with 889 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns last season and was expected to be a focal point for the Gators' offense Saturday and all season. Callaway was suspended earlier this month for improper use of student ID's at the student bookstore.

This is just all too much for people to take in, and the reactions on Twitter are just rolling in with the Florida suspensions now hitting double digits.

Desir-Jones saw playing time in two games last season on the offensive line, but switched to defensive line this season. In May, Callaway was cited for marijuana possession, but he was not suspended, and McElwain stated he was dealing with the situation internally, without a public announcement of discipline. Miller, Houston, and Smith are freshmen, but Davis earned five starts last season.
