Florida was already going to be missing four starters for its opener Saturday vs. Toledo, including RB Matt Jones (viral infection, probable return at Miami in Week 2), LB Antonio Morrison (1-game suspension), OT Chaz Green (torn labrum, done for the season) and OG Jon Halapio (out at least 3 more weeks).
Now Gator Country and Scout.com have reported that three more Gators (2 starters) have been suspended for one game, including star CB/WR Loucheiz Purifoy and DT Darious Cummings.
That means UF won’t have six starters for Saturday’s season opener vs Toledo. Nevertheless, most books still have the Gators favored by 23.5 with a total of 55.5 for ‘over/under’ wagers.
