GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida will start spring practice without two of its top offensive players.
UF coach Jim McElwain announced Tuesday that wide receiver Antonio Callaway and quarterback/receiver Treon Harris will not be practicing with the team.
“They haven’t been with us since January and they won’t be with us as we’re rolling, so you won’t see those guys out there at practice,” McElwain said. “Guys, that’ll be the last that we talk about that.”

Callaway and Harris, both from Booker T. Washington High School in Miami, are still enrolled at UF.
A Florida spokesperson confirmed the two players are suspended, but the school nor McElwain would specify why. This is Callaway’s first suspension and the third for Harris.
He missed the Tennessee game last season due to a violation of team rules and was also briefly suspended in October 2014 after being accused of sexual assault, a complaint that was withdrawn days later.
“Possibly,” McElwain said of a position change for Harris. “We’ll see. We’ll talk about it when it happens.”
As a sophomore, Harris threw for 1,676 yards in 10 games played with nine touchdowns, six interceptions and a 51 percent completion rate. After a 6-0 start to the 2015 season, the Gators went 4-4 with Harris as the full-time starter.
Callaway caught a team-high four touchdowns and led Florida in receiving yards with 678, which set the school record for a true freshman.
