Florida has suspended quarterback Treon Harris and cornerback Jalen Tabor for the Tennessee game.

Gators head coach Jim McElwain refused to go into details of the suspension. However, ESPN’s Brett McMurphy said that they came about¬†because Harris had failed a drug test and Tabor had refused to take a drug test, resulting in an automatic suspension.

Harris had been battling QB Will Grier for the starting job in The Swamp. He’s passed for 269 yards and 2 TDs in two games for Florida, and run for 55 yards. Grier played well in the 14-9 at Kentucky on Saturday night, and would probably have started the game against Tennessee.

Tabor will be a monster loss for Florida in the secondary. Florida fans are pretty worried about their secondary this season, and Tabor’s been one of the strengths, with 10 tackles, four pa one interception to his name in three games.

A Kentucky fan described Tabor as a “beast on defense” during the game last week.

This isn’t Harris’ first run-in in the State of Florida. In mid-December he was suspended after being booked by driving without a license for it. Marijuana was found in the car, but¬†Harris was not arrested for the material since the car didn’t belong to him or the two people in the car with him – one Jalen Tabor and J.C. Jackson.
