The Florida Gators are looking like one of the best programs in the country right now. That is partially in thanks to the play of redshirt freshman quarterback Will Grier.
The team is now going to have to do some work in the offensive backfield. It was reported by Gridiron Now’s Mike Hueguenin that Florida is expected to announce that Grier will be suspended for the rest of the season due to a violation of NCAA rules.
Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman also commented on the suspension and said that it had been confirmed.
ESPN’s Brett McMurphy confirmed that the suspension stems from Grier testing positive for PEDs.
Grier has been a big part of why the Gators are 6-0 and ranked in the AP top ten right now. He has thrown for 1,204 yards and ten touchdowns against just three interceptions, while rushing for 116 yards and two more scores.
Backup quarterback, sophomore Treon Harris, will likely take over the starting position. Harris was suspended for the Kentucky and Tennessee games for a violation of team rules.
In 2014, Harris has only appeared in two games. He has thrown for 262 yards and two touchdowns.
The Gators take on the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge on Saturday, October 17.
