COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and two teammates have been suspended for Saturday's home game against Vanderbilt after they were arrested by campus police on drug charges.

Two other players were also suspended, though they were not arrested. All are freshmen.

University police say Green-Beckham, Torey Boozer and Levi Copelin were sitting in Green-Beckham's white Lincoln Navigator in a parking lot near Memorial Stadium shortly before midnight when a patrol officer approached and smelled marijuana.

Each was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana and released with a summons to appear in court next month.

A team spokesman says the players will miss at least one game. So will Harold Brantley and Brandon Holifield, who were in the car but not arrested.
