Dorial Green-Beckham, Missouri’s talented wide receiver, has been suspended by the team indefinitely on Monday according a release from coach Gary Pinkel. Green-Beckham is currently part of an investigation by Columbia Police, although he hasn’t been arrested.
“It’s unfortunate, but it’s the right thing to do for our football program, for the athletic department and also for Dorial,” Pinkel said. “We have high standards related to the expectations that come along with being a Missouri Tiger, and Dorial has not met those recently. Representing Mizzou and our fans is a privilege, and we’ll work with him during this process. It’s been disappointing to have this, and other issues which have taken place lately. It’s frustrating, because we work very hard to instill responsibility and discipline in our young men so that our program represents Mizzou the right way. These actions aren’t representative of those expectations, and we are addressing these issues head on.”
Green-Beckham was the No. 1 wide receiver recruit out of high school and is a first-round NFL talent. However he’s already had a few issues off the field. In 2012 he was arrested for marijuana possession and suspended one game. In January he was again arrested for drugs.
It looks like more details will come in later this week:
