COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been suspended indefinitely for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Coach Gary Pinkel announced the suspension Monday, roughly three months after the standout receiver was arrested along with two men after police in his hometown of Springfield found a pound of marijuana in their car. No criminal charges have been filed in that case.

Green-Beckham was also charged in October 2012 with marijuana possession in Columbia and later pleaded guilty to second-degree trespassing. He and two teammates were reportedly smoking pot in a campus parking lot near Memorial Stadium.

Green-Beckham led Missouri with 59 receptions as a sophomore last season and scored 12 touchdowns. Some recruiting services ranked the 6-foot-6, 225-pound receiver as the top prep prospect coming out of Springfield Hillcrest High.
