Gators let Callaway, Cleveland, Wells practice amid issues

GAINESVILLE — Florida will allow troubled receivers Antonio Callaway, Tyrie Cleveland and Rick Wells to practice when fall camp opens Thursday.

Coach Jim McElwain says all three will be on the field despite their ongoing issues.

Callaway was suspended in January for violating the university’s code of conduct policy. He was partially reinstated in June, and allowed to return to campus and work out with teammates. McElwain has repeatedly declined to disclose details about Callaway’s suspension.

Callaway caught 35 passes for 678 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman last season. He also returned 28 punts for 435 yards and two scores.

Cleveland and Wells, both freshmen, are facing felony charges for allegedly firing BB guns into a residential hall last month. McElwain says Cleveland and Wells were “dealt some heavy consequences right when it happened.”
