Do you have any errors logged on the switch port (portstatsshow <port>)? And portshow <port> output?
Do you have any errors logged in the errlog (errdump) for this switch port?
What do the fabriclog -s show for this port?
What is your FOS version?

FFirst change SFPs and Cable then look below.
I have seen the same with a port with cable errors.
If you look at the configuration of the port "portcfgshow <port>".
You have some point to focus on:
Locked L_Port OFF
Locked G_Port OFF
Disabled E_Port OFF
Locked E_Port OFF
If the "Locked G_Port" is one it will default to G-Port every time. It took me some time to find it :-).
You can change the port with:
And I had to change E_Port as well. But yours is a F-Port so you might not need that.
