Florida will purportedly be without star cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy and four reserves against the Toledo Rockets today (12:21 p.m., SEC Network).
Citing unnamed sources, Gatorcountry.com first reported the suspensions of Pufifoy, junior-college transfer defensive tackle Darious Cummings, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Quinteze Williams, sophomore wideout Latroy Pittman and freshman defensive tackle Jay-nard Bostwick for unspecified rules violations. The Gainesville Sun later reported the suspensions.
Linebacker Antonio Morrison is also suspended for the opener after multiple arrests this offseason.
UF has not confirmed the latest suspensions or returned messages seeking comment.
Florida confirmed the suspensions of Purifoy, Pittman, Cummings and Williams. No word on Bostwick.
During Wednesday's SEC teleconference, coach Will Muschamp said no player other than Morrison would miss the opener due to a suspension.
