GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida standout receiver Antonio Callaway used a stolen credit card to add $1,970 to his campus bookstore prepaid account and then used the money to purchase a high-end computer and fancy headphones, according to university police.

Now he's facing two third-degree felony charges and potentially the end of his college football career.

According to Alachua County court records, sworn complaints were filed Monday against Callaway and eight teammates. The players were suspended indefinitely in August. The State Attorney's Office will investigate before deciding whether to formally charge the players.

Jones criticizes media coverage of Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee coach Butch Jones criticized the media coverage of his program Monday while responding to a question about an injured player.

Jones started out by saying "football is an emotional and a competitive game" before noting the injury wasn't caused by a teammate and that Tuttle merely landed on a helmet.

Washington loses WR McClatcher for year

SEATTLE (AP) Sixth-ranked Washington will be without starting wide receiver Chico McClatcher for the rest of the season after he broke his left ankle, taking away one of the most electric options in the Huskies' offense.

Coach Chris Petersen said Monday that McClatcher was consulting with doctors but that surgery would likely be necessary to repair the injury he suffered in Saturday's 37-10 victory over Colorado . McClatcher was the Huskies' second-leading receiver with 10 receptions for 128 yards despite playing in only three of Washington's four games. He has also been used in the running game and on kickoff returns.
