GAINESVILLE -- Antonio Morrison will play against Miami on Sept. 7, coach Will Muschamp said Monday.
Florida’s starting middle linebacker will miss Saturday’s opener against Toledo, but the sophomore’s suspension has been reduced from two games to one.
“I just don’t feel like his actions warranted a two-game suspension,” Muschamp said.
Morrison was arrested twice in a five-week period this summer, including a July 21 detainment for allegedly harassing a police animal. The charges were later dropped.
“He’s very remorseful about the whole situation, and we’ve moved forward,” Muschamp said. “Guys make mistakes and have poor judgment at times. I’m just disappointed with how the entire night was handled.”
• Starting right tackle Chaz Green will miss the entire 2013 season with a torn labrum. The junior, who started 10 games in 2012, will undergo surgery later this week.
