Florida coach Jim McElwain confirmed that starting quarterback Will Grier is suspended for this week and “in the near future” because of a failed drug test. McElwain said it was an over-the-counter supplement.
“It was an honest mistake, and yet it could be prevented,” McElwain said. “I want everybody to understand that this is a mistake that we will learn from.”
- Grier also issued a statement on his suspension.
- Figures from around the college football community reacted to this huge news.
McElwain did not confirm what the supplement was. He said he learned of the suspension Sunday. He said Grier will remain with the team, but he is ineligible to play.
