Florida has suspended cornerback Jalen Tabor and tight end C'yontai Lewis

The Gators have suspended cornerback Jalen Tabor and tight end C'yontai Lewis indefinitely from team activities.

Florida will be missing two of its players when the Gators kick of it's season, including an All-American corner. UF head coach Jim McElwain announced on Wednesday morning that junior cornerback Jalen Tabor and red-shirt sophomore C'yontai Lewis are suspended from the team indefinitely. 

"Both C'yontai and Jalen will not be involved with the team or practice due to behavior that is not acceptable,'' McElwain said in a statement. "By no means are these bad guys and yet consequences have been handed down. We will not look the other way when it comes to breaking of team policies. I want to echo what I said earlier, these are both fine young men who will learn and be stronger from their actions. They will also be suspended for the first game. There are life lessons in everything we do. We will be better because of it and no one person is bigger than the Florida Gators."

Both Lewis and Tabor will not participate in team activities and practice and will miss the season opener against UMass on September 3rd.
