Gainesville, Fla. - No. 17 Florida has suspended two more players, including starting running back Jordan Scarlett, for its season opener against 11th-ranked MI.

Running back Jordan Scarlett joins star receiver Antonio Callaway and seven other players that were already suspended, as does reserve receiver Rick Wells.

According to CBS Sports, Gator wide receiver James Robinson and linebacker Ventrell Miller were cited with misdemeanor marijuana possession on Monday. That brings to 10 the total number of Florida players suspended for Saturday's game in Arlington, Texas.

The world No 2's withdrawal is the latest in a remarkable series of physical setbacks suffered by some of the game's top players. The tournament represents Sharapova's first appearance in a Grand Slam match since the 2016 Australian Open .

The University of Florida Police Department is investigating an allegation of credit-card fraud related to some football players, public information officer Brad Barber said early Wednesday evening.

ESPN.com's Edward Aschoff reported the suspensions were due to players "making improper charges on their student IDs at the school bookstore and then selling those items for cash".

Gators coach Jim McElwain is expected to address the latest suspensions after practice today, but the news isn't good for Florida.

In all seriousness, though, being without your leading rusher AND receiver for a game against Jim Harbaugh and MI, no matter how many starters they lost from last season, is very much less than ideal.

Desir-Jones saw playing time in two games last season on the offensive line, but switched to defensive line this season.

With Scarlett and Callaway sidelined, the Gators are now without their leading rusher and receiver from a year ago entering perhaps the biggest season opener in program history. Miller, Houston, and Smith are freshmen, but Davis earned five starts last season.
