Gators name QB Feleipe Franks Week 1 starter; RB, WR latest to be suspended

8:11 PM ET

No. 17 Florida has named redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks the starting quarterback for its season opener against No. 11 Michigan, but the Gators also will be without two more players Saturday in Texas.

Franks, who will make his first career start, beat out incumbent starter Luke Del Rio, the son of Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, and Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire. Del Rio started six games last season before sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury in November. Zaire joined the competition in June and still could see time in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

Earlier Wednesday, Florida indefinitely suspended starting running back Jordan Scarlett and wide receiver Rick Wells.
