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.
