The Florida Gators' list of players suspended for their biggest season opener in at least three decades is up to 10, including UF's top running back and receiver.
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.
Star receiver Antonio Callaway headlined the group of players previously involved in the incident. Callaway led the Gators with 54 catches for 721 yards in 2016 while Scarlett rushed for 889 yards and six scores.
Four-star freshman receiver James Robinson, will miss the game, too, after receiving a citation on a complaint of marijuana possession last week. They won't be allowed to rejoin the team until making financial restitution.
Jaguars name Blake Bortles starting QB for regular season
Henne got the start over Bortles during the team's third preseason game and many assumed that the job would be his. Asked how he thought the quarterback competition would turn out this upcoming week, Bortles said he had no idea.
Of the suspended players, only Callaway, Scarlett and Davis were expected to be significant contributors this season.
Callaway is one of Florida's most risky weapons on offense, accounting for 721 yards and three touchdowns, along with 218 yards returning.
This is the second suspension for Scarlett and Wells.
Scarlett was suspended for the 2016 Citrus Bowl game against MI following a marijuana possession charge.
Feldman reported that none of the suspended players have been charged with anything since the investigation is still ongoing.
