GAINESVILLE – Three Florida players, including starting nose guard Darious Cummings, were suspended three hours before Saturday’s scheduled kickoff against Idaho.

Also missing the season-opener at Florida Field were backup wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and backup nose guard Jay-nard Bostwick.

“Jay-nard Bostwick and Darious Cummings will not play due to a violation of team rules and Demarcus Robinson will miss the game due to a university sanction that is now resolved,” Gators head coach Will Muschamp posted on the team’s web site, gatorzone.com.

“I support the university sanction. We have rules here that we have to follow – team, athletic department and university rules – and when you don’t follow them there are consequences.

“I expect all three players to return next week.”

With the top-two nose guards out, the Gators were expected to move Leon Orr over from tackle and play either Bryan Cox Jr. or Joey Ivie in Orr’s place.

Florida safety Marcus Maye (hamstring) is the only player listed as questionable before the game.

I guess if you had to be suspended, last night was the perfect time. What a mess that was.
