Scarlett and redshirt freshman receiver Rick Wells will join eight other players coach Jim McElwain has suspended for the most high-profile season opener for the Gators in decades.

Two more Florida football players were suspended for the team's season opener against MI, bringing the the total to 10, the school announced Wednesday.

Four-star freshman receiver James Robinson, will miss the game, too, after receiving a citation on a complaint of marijuana possession last week.

Florida suspended those players - offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort, defensive end Keivonnis Davis, defensive end Jordan Smith, defensive tackle Richerd Desir-Jones, linebacker James Houston and linebacker Ventrell Miller - in mid-August.

We're now just three days away from one of the biggest games of the opening weekend for college football between the Florida Gators and Michigan Wolverines, and well, as more time goes on, it's looking like this might be much of a game at all.

According to the Associated Press' Mark Long, Scarlett and Wells are suspended for the same reasons as the prior seven suspensions, misuse of school-appropriated scholarship funds.

None of the nine players involved in the fraud will travel to Texas.

Scarlett led Florida with 889 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns last season and was expected to be a focal point for the Gators' offense Saturday and all season.

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". Callaway, a junior and the team's top playmaker, has 89 catches for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons.
