ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, once heralded as the No. 1 recruit in the nation out of high school, has been kicked off the team.

The move was announced Friday, a day after police in Columbia, Mo., said no charges would be filed in a suspected burglary because of reluctant witnesses fearing retaliation.

Green-Beckham was suspended indefinitely from the team on Monday for unspecified violation of team rules.

Coach Gary Pinkel said in a statement that Green-Beckham needs to be focused on getting help, and that the school would do all it could to help the player.

Green-Beckham led Missouri with 59 receptions as a sophomore last season and scored 12 touchdowns, including a school single-game record of four scores against Kentucky.

    it would be nice if more players got kicked off the team instead of bringing them back… people need to be held accountable… money seems to buy a lot of silence
