The Florida Gators announced suspensions for two players just before kickoff against UT Martin.
Brad Stewart and Luke Ancrum “did not live up to the Gator standard,” according to Florida.
This is the second game in a row that Stewart has missed for “not living up to the Gator standard.” The safety from Louisiana had worked his way into a starting role in 2018 before off field issues starting affecting his playing time. That seems to be the case for him again in 2019. Compounding the suspension is the absence of starting safety Jeawon Taylor today with a shoulder injury. The Gators will have just hawn Davis and Donovan Stiner at safety against UT Martin.
Luke Ancrum, a senior from Sebring, has played in 19 games during his career including the season opener against Miami. He recorded one solo tackle against the Canes in week 0.
Additionally Florida announced that Amari Burney would miss the game with an injury.
