UF coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday there is nothing new to report on the nine players under indefinite suspension while a University Police investigation continues into possible credit card fraud.
McElwain was asked what his level of concern is that the ongoing investigation could drag on and impact a considerable part of the season.
“No concern,” he said.
So, it looks like the Gators will be without two of their best offensive players for a second consecutive game — running back Jordan Scarlett and wide receiver Antonio Callaway.
The other suspended players are linebacker Jordan Smith, defensive end Keivonnis Davis, linebacker James Houston, linebacker Ventrell Miller, offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort, wide receiver Rick Wells and defensive tackle Richerd Desir-Jones.
True freshman wide receiver James Robinson, who was suspended from the opener after being cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession, will not play in Saturday’s game. He is undergoing tests for a possible heart condition.
“No update on James’ heart,” McElwain said.
